    Child monitoring with Virtual Machines


    Okay, so I know that the Windows 8.1 child monitoring system allows you to see what apps are used and what webpages are accessed through a child account, but can it see through Virtual Machine systems such as VirtualBox? Please try to answer these questions in particular:

    -Can I see a webpage accessed through a VM?
    -Can I see an app (from the Windows store or otherwise) executed through a VM?
    -Can I see a webpage/program accessed/run through use of a shared folder in a VM?

    I know I can just look to see if my child has used VirtualBox but he has legitimate reasons to be using it so I want more detailed info.

    Thanks ahead of time.
