1. The host OS is Windows XP SP2 with all current updates. The guest OS is Windows XP SP2 with all current updates without guest additions.
After installing guest additions the guest system crushes to BSOD after reboot. I have managed this manually updating the VirtualBox Graphic Adapter driver in Safe Mode.

Some applications which I want to test on a Windows XP virtual machine don't work properly in VirtualBox while they work fine in MS Virtual PC 2007. For sample, successfuly installed Comodo Firewal Pro reports an error upon startup but continue to run (sometimes it may say that its Defence+ module has limited functionality under applied virtual environment restrictions.) Another program - ProcessGuard fails to start its GUI aspect and cannot be accessed by the GUI. All of these application work properly under another virtualization software (I use MS Virtual PC 2007) on same the host OS.
Simultaneous changing the size of active title bar and its font size during advanced customizing the default Windows XP desktop appearance in the giest OS leads to inappropriate resizing the icons in the All Programs start menu and the icons in the notification area of the taskbar. But applying these changes one by one puts the icons in right size.
