I use AVG 8 in about a dozen virtual machines on four different hosts and I
have not seen this. None of my computers are Dells, however. Two run Vista
x64 SP1 and two run XP Pro SP3. The guests run the gamut of XP SP3 and
Vista SP1. I suggest you log into the AVG forums for advice. You might
also try Avast, since it is also free for consumer users and runs in all
configurations of hosts and guests. I use Avast in a few guests, mostly
running Win9x/ME, which AVG 8 no longer supports.
