    Faster Windows 10 host with several Win 10 guests


    I run several windows 10 virtual machines at the same time on my workstation at work. Sometimes when they were idle, the the Disk IO would hit 100% due to windows defender doing a scan, etc... (checked via resource monitor) Well that would clobber the host and other VMs. And when two VM's started doing it, game over.

    So I followed the instructions on this site (nice work BTW) to turn off windows defender for the VM's and rebooted. Wow, what a difference. Login was faster too. The 100% disk hit after login was shorter.

    Now I may put on an AV program where I can control what its up to. Webroot is my favorite for performance in VMs. But most of the VMs aren't used to browse the web / email, etc...

    Just wanted to share!

    :)

    Using win 10 and a Hyper-V virtual client

    Thank you. Can I open one application from the host client(win 10) and another application from the guest client (win xp) at the same time? Can I access and use the open windows displayed from the two applications on the fly?

    The host client AND the guest client are accessing the same server to retrieve data.
