Norton 360 and Parallel 8 on iMac

Hi, I'm running Mac OS X on an iMac. I also use Parallels 8 to run a virtual session of the Windows 7 OS.

I have a licensed copy on Norton 360 on my Mac and also one on the virtual session of Windows 7 (2 licensed copies). I use my Windows box for Email (Outlook) and for other Window Apps that I don't want to repurchase for the Mac (Adobe AE, Photoshop, etc.). I do sometimes go out to the Internet with the Windows box.

My question is… do I need 2 licensed copies of Norton 360 on one machine, regardless of how many virtual sessions I'm running?

Shouldn't it be one licensed copy of Norton 360 on one hard drive?

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks you,
Fulano

Yes, because Anti Virus on the Host computer, will not be able to scan or detect any virus in the virtual machine.

So you will always need Anti-virus for the Host, and EVERY VM!
