Version 6.0.0 r127566 (Qt5.6.2)
Host OS: windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Professional
Guest OS: Windows 10, or windows 2016

Once install guest additions, the screen of the virtual client cannot display properly.
I have tried installing the virtualbox 6.0 with guest additions on the different physical computers, the problem still remain.

Does anyone has similar problem?
Please comment or solutions, thanks!

Please take a look at the Known Issues in the "Discuss the 6.0.0 release".

I suspect you got bitten by #18205 VM does not refresh, but preview window runs realtime. If so, please go to the VM Settings > Display > Screen > Graphics Controller and change that to "VBoxVGA".

If that doesn't work, we need to see a complete VBox.log, from a complete VM run:
  • Start the VM from cold-boot (not from a paused or saved state) / Observe problem / Shutdown the VM (force close it if you have to).
  • With the VM completely shut down (not paused or saved), right-click on the VM in the VirtualBox Manager and select "Show Log".
  • Save only the first "VBox.log", ZIP it and attach it to your response. See the "Upload attachment" tab below the reply form.
