Problem can be duplicated on Virtualbox 4.0.10.

Problem applies to Windows 7 32-bit guest with Intel VT-x enabled too. If VT-x will be disabled in the guest configuration Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 works fine. On Windows 7 64-bit guest, where Intel VT-x is mandatory, Kaspersky functions correct. Hence, problem seems to be related to Windows 32-bit guests only.
