3.2.x results in system hangs / BSODs on XP x64 host

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
Initially I thought the 3.2.x series was great, finally the guest hangs/BSODs I was getting with the 3.1.x series were no more. Unfortunately I can't consider trading them in for host hangs/BSODs as a good trade-off.
The hangs/BSODs seem fairly random which made diagnosing the offending application rather difficult, I did so by reverting/uninstalling applications until host stability returned.
I had just gone several days after uninstalling 3.2.0 without further incident when 3.2.2 was released, within an hour of installing it I copped a BSOD.
My best guess is that it has something to do with the network driver as internet facing applications were the ones to hang (Seamonkey, Vuze, Skype) and it does so even if the VirtualBox application is not running.
Specs: Intel Q9450, Gigabyte EP45-DS3R, 8GB DDR2-800, 4* 1TB RAID 10 (ICH10R)
Comodo Firewall 3.14.130099.587, Avast AV (still hangs if uninstalled though), Spybot S&D
So for now I've reverted back to 3.0.12 (the last version without issues).
