Peaks in CPU-load on Vista 32 bit when VirtualBox is installed
|Reported by:||pk||Owned by:|
I have regular (approx. every 10 seconds) peaks in CPU load (up to ~50% utilization on a Core2Duo-system) on my Win Vista host when VirtualBox is installed. The load is caused by the "System" process (i.e., the Windows kernel), and it happens even if VirtualBox is not running. However, the peaks seemed to have disappeared after I had removed VirtualBox completely and reappeared after I reinstalled it, so I'd guess that some kernel module/driver installed by VirtualBox might be responsible for this.
I also seems that those peaks disappear as soon as I unplug my network cable.
