    I am running windows on parallels desktop for mac, everything is fine it works great. I installed zone alarm on my windows virtual machine(and it'z running full and functional), and i haven't seen anything blocked by the firewalls, no alerts nothing blocked as nothing comes to attack it? am i like invisible in the virtual machine??

    Are we there yet?
    No you are NOT invisible running Windows in Parallels. Assuming that you have Zone Alarm set up propertly, it sounds like you are just lucky so far. If you are really uncertain, clone a working copy of Windows, turn off Zone Alarm, go visit some nasty sites - shouldn't be hard to find those with some googling - and see what happens. I think you'll be glad you have the cloned copy!
