I have disabled mine for a while. I have VMware workstation and I have disabled all of its services and it works fine when I use it, very rarely. Mostly because Microsoft gave away a free copy of windows until september which I am using with M$ VPC 2007.
Umm...I think I over-did it. When I start VMWare server, it asks for details to connect to Host. I never filled anything out when i installed it, so Ive no idea what to type in. Guess Ill have to uninstall and start over.
VPC is more useful if you are opening and closing regularly. As it has less issues with ram used etc.
VM is better if running for extensive periods for normal use.
So if you are using it just to test for malware, VPC may be a better option.
VPC 2007 is free - VM workstation is not. Both require a licence code for the virtual machine to use, but as said a VPC drive for using with VPC is available for download which includes a pre activated licence for XP.
Both the VM server and MS Virtual Server are free.
