Seems to be a problem with your drivers. Possibly due to a hardening problem (check your hardening log).

Assigning 100% (8) of available cores to your VM probably won't be helping the host run well either.

Can't say much more since you provided a truncated log. You need to shut software down before copying files they had open for writing.

I'm sorry about that. I hadn't realized that the VM was open. Here's a proper log, with the core usage now set to 4 (though, I didn't have any issues with host slowdown...).

Edit-
I can't seem to upload another attachment, but here's the hardening log:

.... Seems like an OpenGL problem? I'm not sure how to fix it, though.

I see the same warnings in my log (not the one I attached before since that was with VBoxSVGA and no 3D, but in new ones since I'm back to VBoxVGA with 3D now).
Is this driver problem something I could fix myself?

My GPU is an Intel HD Graphics 530 (in an Intel Core i5-6600). I'm using the latest drivers (25.20.100.6519 DCH drivers).

Hello,

can one switch off the enlarged mouse pointer in 6.0 / 6.0.2 with a Windows 10 guest VM or do it again as it has been under 5.2.X? If you work more often in such a VM it is annoying. I had already opened my own Topic for that, but because it's the first topic, which annoys me really at Virtualbox (since version 4.X) I wanted to mention it here as well.

Thank you

Ronald

Hello,

I updated Virtual Box from 5.1.X to 6.0.2 on macOS Mojave (10.14) running on a rather old mac mini (late 2012 / 16GB)
Version 5.1 in this machine is quite usable. Mainly run ubuntu guests (16.04, 18 .04) for dev purposes. Now with 6.0.2 I am having slow startups, high cpu usage spikes and guest locks.
Guests extensions already updated to 6.0.2.
Am I missing something?

Regards.

Reverted to 5.1 to realize that it does not run on macOS Mojave. Installed VirtualBox 5.2 and observed the same slow VM startups.
Back to 6.0.2 now with the display driver configured as VMSVGA, cpu spikes and guest locks are gone up to now.
Seems that Mojave is taxing VirtualBox.
