    lol ... go to your bank and talk to your servant personally. When he enters your data, certain ppl will see that even you had no online banking in between ... hahaha

    running a VM of XP in Windows 10 still using windows 10 as shared resources feeding the VM straight into windows 10, to isolate your banking from windows 10, dont use windows 10 at all.

    Using banking, special online Banking on Windows 10 TP (any version) is just stupid, as well to use any other private/personal and/or important data! Who's ignoring that W10TP is using Key-Logger and Telemetry and still use it for any sensitive data, should n ever wonder if problems will maybe occurs, which may end up in any lose of .............., which could be extend into legal proceedings and action.

    As MS itself strongly advice NOT to use Windows 10TP (any version) for other than just testing, in reality deserves to get punished.

    An VM which is running within W10TP will no hinder that the data are send to MS!

    I can only repeat the statements of the previous posters.

    Why would anyone want to run an outdated, unsupported OS in a virtual machine on an unfinished, unreleased, and therefore possibly unreliable OS, and use it for sensitive stuff like online banking? That's two bad ideas combined. Please, if you didn't lose your sanity completely yet (no offense), install an up-to-date and fully supported OS (Windows 7+) as your primary and run Windows 10 TP in a VM, and use that for testing purposes only. Just my two cents...

    Maybe he thought two bad ideas would neutralize?

    Joke aside, no. Just, no. Use a dedicated, high-sec PC just for those tasks. Doesn't need to be a high-end machine. No 10, no XP, use a released, supported OS. Like Linux.
