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.
