A third choice is VirtualBox. I just checked the website for it and it is 
available for Windows. I also noticed it is from Oracle and some people 
don't like dealing with Oracle products. I've been using VirtualBox under 
Linux to run an older version of Windows so I can run a 3D modelling program 
that is Windows only.

One of the things that pushed me towards VirtualBox was ease of setup. I 
first looked at VM Ware but found it confusing to determine which version I 
would have needed to use.
