Windows 7 OS with Ubuntu virtual drive installed

  cowgirl66 09:58 02 Sep 2012

Hi everyone, I am having a great time exploring Ubuntu having installed it as a download to Windows7 with Wubi. The concern I am having now is, is it ok to run the 'gufw' firewall for Ubuntu because I still have Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 in Windows. And I would also feel safer with an antivirus for Ubuntu too for online banking etc. Apparently, I have read that Windows recognises Ubuntu as a different OS whereas in fact it is only a download and that is what I can't relate to this issue.

Any help much appreciated. Cowgirl66
