MS Office 2007 instances hangs after using shared folder on MacOsX (Guest: XP)

Description

Host: MacOsX Guest: Windows XP SP3 32Bit

If I open a file or save in the shared folder it takes much longer which is no real problem but this Office instance does hangs after closing it. It isn't shown in the task bar but it is still running and prevents XP from shutting down and saving this file again afterwards. So every time a new file name have to be used. Copying and installing does work fine from the shared folder. It seems to be a combination of MS Office 2007 with the MacOsX shared folder. It happens with Word, Excel and Powerpoint.

This doesn't happen on my Ubuntu host so I guess it is a Apple issue.

Can anyone confirm this or is anything else needed? I post the log as soon as possible. This is not my system.

"2009-07-24 09:11:41 changed by bob.yang I have the same slow performance problem. My Virutalbox is 2.1.4_OSE. The host is Ubuntu904, the guest is WindowsXP ServicePack?3. My solution is "disable the below 2 services in windows": 1.TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper 2.WebClient? Remember to set them be 'manual start'."

This statement fixed the hanging problem for me. Still very slow but at least the shared folder can now be used through MS Office application.
