Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
Hardware: HP Compaq 6910p )(Core duo) Host: Ubuntu 9.10 Guest: Win 7 Version: 3.1.4
CPU usage on both host and guest are minimal with no programs open. When either Chrome or Firefox are launched, one core on the host shows 100% utilization, while the guest task manager remains minimal. Usage returns to normal when browsers are closed.
The workaround is to open a secondary VM and run it idly along with the guest.
