Seems there are at least three people voicing this complaint.

I was using VB 5.2.22 on Win7 host with Win10 guests for a long time. I set the guests to use 3D and 2D acceleration and never noticed an issue.

I rebuilt my host to Win10 v1709, same hardware including the NVIDIA Quadro GPU. I installed VB 6.0.10, created new VMs, and then quickly ran into the shared folder crash, so backed down to 6.0.8.

When I set the Win10 guest to use 2D and 3D (256MB), I have graphics issues. The most notable is that videos won't play in WMP or VLC (audio only, no image shown). There is also a lot of flickering and choppiness in the OS UI. If I toggle off 3D, then videos will play and other OS UI animations are smooth again.
