Customer wanted to insure the safety of his Windows 10 machine while conducting certain (legal) activities on the web. Some research would potentially expose a computer to viruses and malware.


Two methods were implemented for the customer:

1. A bootable USB stick was created that allowed the customer to boot into a light-weight Linux operating system. This took the Windows 10 operating system completely out of the picture, preserving Windows 10 for his personal use.

2. Virtual machines were installed using Windows 10 as the host. This allowed the customer access to Windows 10 simultenously with the virtual machines and at the same time keeping Windows 10 isolated from the potentially harmful activities encountered by the virtual machines.
