Windows XP application freezes

Description

I have been using vbox for more than a year now (to my opinion, a jewel of application), and have a bug to report that exists up to the current version 2.0.6. I have been using both 32 and 64 bit versions and they show the same phenomenon, on either dual or quad core Linux boxes with a variety of kernels up to the recent ones. I am running windows xp from vbox and get occasional freezes of applications (xxx not responding, not depending on the application). It occurs mostly when multiple demanding applications are open, and when numerous actions have been executed. The application freeze can always be unlocked by opening 'My computer' and clicking 1-3 times through the windows file system - at whatever level of file location. I have tried to 'fix' things at the windows xp side, by all sorts of optimizations and tweaks. It does help reducing the frequency of freezes without stopping them. I have also tried Frank Mehnert's suggestion to set the parameter 'force_async_tsc=1'. It seems to help to some degree, but does not solve the problem for once and for ever. I appreciate your suggestions Franz

I've added two more VBox.log files Franz sent me via private E-mail.

Franz, could you attach the output of dmesg after the VBox kernel modules were loaded?
