Guest Additions for Windows XP breaks functionality for unvirtualized windows

Reported by: vi Owned by:
Priority: major Component: guest additions
Version: VirtualBox 3.0.4 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: other


When Windows XP with installed VirtualBox guest additions runs without VirtualBox, the mouse pointer is constantly reset to the left bottom corner (if I manage to deliver it before reset I can click somewhere), keyboard is very slow and not all keys are working, and after some time it shows "STOP 0x7F" bluescreen.

(No VBox.log because of outside of VirtualBox)

After uninstalling Guest Additions it works OK.

It is russian Windows XP build 2600, SP2.

P.S. Is there any way to temporarily disable guest additions at boot time? Hardware Profiles are not the way (additions do appear in all profiles).
