What about the privilege escalation? I can take a lot of care of what I install, but what if some other person use my same computer and is not that careful.



There is no way to securely share a Windows install with untrusted users. Use real VMs.


I wouldn't necessarily dare to install untrusted software on a VM either.

VM escapes are a thing. They have a ton of emulated peripherals, like SATA, ethernet, audio, video/3d, USB HCI, etc. A lot of attack surface. There are still a lot of VM escape bugs to be found.
