Meanwhile I made a new observation: Looks like it's not specifically I/O but the task scheduling as a whole that freezes up.
Keyboard is a Cherry MX3000 connected via PS/2, Mouse is a Logitech G5 (USB..). Host system is a i7-2600 running Windows 7. No problems there at all. Only in the WinXP-VirtualBox and only after installing .NET 4.0.
If the brain were so simple we could understand it, we would be so simple we couldn't. — Lyall Watson
If your mouse is freezing in the VM... then I doubt there is much you can do about it besides upgrading to a better CPU with a larger L1,L2,L3 CPU cache and perhaps more cores. That's a clear sign of thread i/o starvation in the VirtualBox parent process.
I would be willing to bet that the root cause is TLB cache misses...
Passed my probation period, got my branded jacket and am a full employee now, so I thought I would celebrate by logging in on my PC and not just my phone to make weird and wonderful comments again!
"the debugger doesn't tell me anything because this code compiles just fine" - random QA comment
"Facebook is where you tell lies to your friends. Twitter is where you tell the truth to strangers." - chriselst
"I don't drink any more... then again, I don't drink any less." - Mike Mullikins uncle
I need to remote into a Win10 machine to tidy up a friend's misadventures. I have a Win7 Pro box (preferred) or Win10 Home (if I really really have to). From what I could see, Win10 to Win10 Remote Assist needs one or both ends to have a M$ account, which is something that doesn't appeal. Anyone had experience with remote assist to Win10? Clues? Traps to avoid?
I resisted the temptation of a recursive subject line

If it is only one off or occasional use TeamViewer.
You don't need to install on either end. Use TeamViewer Portable at your end and TeamViewer Quick Support at the other.
Gives you pretty much full access, doesn't require Pro version of Windows and if a particular key sequence is required get the guy at the other end to press it.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
