I'm logged in as administrator and have also checked "Show processes from all users". There are lots of not so important details already, so it'd be appreciated if someone could provide the basics. Thanks a lot for sharing this, my office got considerably quieter now.

I had the same issue w/ Fusion and Parallels earlier and was glad to see that VirtualBox on a Windows host doesn't suffer from this problem..

You can do this by going to Device Manager (right click on My Computer -> Hardware -> Device Manager), expanding ‘Comptuer', right-clicking ‘ACPI Multiprocessor PC', select ‘Update Driver…', choose manual installation, thanks!

If the issue doesn't happen, install the agaon 50% of the offered updates, until you figured out which update causes it.

comment:23 Changed 3 years ago by dezlov I've tried VirtualBox 4.3.6 and there is a mix of observations.

Output N in base -10 Sunlight and Vampires Print all ASCII alphanumeric characters without using them How should I respond to absurd observations from customers during software product demos? 12 hour Also, even 16% is a lot for a machine that does virtually nothing. comment:8 Changed 20 months ago by JeremyB So I think the 22% we saw was a fluke. Virtualbox Paravirtualization Interface We created a video about it so if anybody knows some people at Oracle just send them the link.

I installed the additions first and then applied all windows updates. Strange issue, I ran into some strange trouble with VirtualBox recently too.

comment:29 Changed 7 years ago by Burz Here is another observation (and possible workaround): Running more than one VM cuts down drastically on the idling wastage. Another solution available to me was to set the affinity of VirtualBox to a single processor but I'm not able to do that, it denied the access.
