When I click on the Start Menu it displays under intensified and all Start Menu functions are froze for a couple minutes. When it finally displays properly and I choose a sub menu it does the same thing with the sub menu. After I use the Start Menu once it freezes up totally until I reboot. Everything else on the desktop works fine (i.e My Computer, My Documents). Yesterday when I first installed VirtualBox the mouse was jerky when selecting Start Menu items. After installing Service Pack 2 the menu started freezing.
Today I completely removed Virtualbox (partitions, everything) and performed a fresh install. The same problem still exists. I believe the problem might have something to do with the guest additions because I was able to access the start menu before I installed the guest additions. After I installed the guest additions it showed up. As soon as I opened a sub menu (i.e. Control Panel) the start menu becomes under intensified and freezes.
