Win 7 installed on Imac using Virtualbox

I am going to install Windows 7 on my Imac using Virtualbox, What kind of antivirus do I need? Windows? Mac? or is there something special for Virtualbox? Or maybe I do not even need an antivirus? At present I do not have an antivirus on my Imac.

Go for a Windows AV. eg Avira/AVG or Avast.

Many don't bother and consider a virtual machine disposable.

Depends how long it takes you to set it up and customise/install your Windows apps.

You can make lots of snapshots and save virtual machine states (and back them up in case of Mac HDD failure).

If you get problems you just restore one of those.

Thanks robinofloxley for you answer. I already have AVG on my PC laptop. I check it out with them.
