Could you please attach the Log file of such session? and what kind of programs and where (host? or guest?) are you running?

Since I seem to also have this problem, I've decided to reopen this bug with my own logs. The setup is the same: 64bit Win7 host, 64bit Ubuntu guest. I could kill everything except the process holding the VM itself. My other VM, a 64bit Debian guest, has never given me this problem. Also, when this happens, all networking ceases to function.

A little background research suggests this probably means a hung call to the NT kernel, a very old bug first noticed by Mark Russinovich back in 2005 (see  https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/markrussinovich/2005/08/17/unkillable-processes/). Combined with the coincident loss of networking, that might suggest the problem lies in VirtualBox's networking driver, though I don't know enough yet to be sure.

I will keep you posted on anything else I uncover. My logs are posted above, and they seem to have some sort of unhandled exception at the end that's probably worth looking into.

Have fun, folks! ;-)
