I've been running Parallels on this set up from release and Fusion more recently. I've never had the problems described. Oh and yes, I run Sophos in the VMs as well and no it still doesn't bog down ... albeit I'm only running Office and in house .Net apps.

Actually, they are probably a good enough reason to use AV software, especially if you use shared folders. There's a greater chance that a virus may make its way into an email, for example.

Run Windows anti-virus utilities in Windows within VMware/Parallels.

Yeah, that too.

I have Comodo in my VirtualBox/XP install, and no AV on my Mac, but I'm vigilant about what exactly gets shared.
