I can not get WinSat to run (Windows System Assessment Tool)

Pretty much every test receives this result:

winsat formal

Running the Formal Assessment

Error: Cannot Measure Time Stamp Counter (TSC) Frequency

winsat cpu

Windows System Assessment Tool Error: Cannot Measure Time Stamp Counter (TSC) Frequency

The Host machine is a Dell 6510 laptop with i7 q720 win7 x64. The Guest is win7 x32. Both are at SP1 and have current windows updates.

I've had no luck running winsat on any version 4 it did run on version 3 except for graphic.

I believe this same issue also leads to long guest OS pauses (for 30 - 90 second) where no activity in the guest happens and then it resumes to normal operations.

I have current guest additions installed,
