W10 guest crashes when opening shared folder with executable file inside.

Current Info:
Virtual Box Version 6.0.10 r132072 (Qt5.9.5), guest tools installed.

Host:
Linux Mint 19.1 Tessa (64-bit)
16GB Memory

Guest:
W10 1903 (64-bit)
4GB Memory

In the log file, 01:51:26.044051 marks the point where I open a shared folder (or sub-folder) with any executable in it, which causes Windows to lock up. It appears Virtual Box then resets the guest. This was not an issue until a few days ago when I powered down the guest and took a snapshot, then made some registry changes. I reverted the snap, however, the problem was still persistent. I downgraded to VBox 5.2.32, still happening. I deleted the VM, moved the shared folder on my host, provisioned a fresh VM, installed W10 1903. Then, the first thing I did was configure a new shared folder, which worked fine until I placed an executable in it. I upgraded my OS (to 19.1) and tried both versions of VBox (all with the corresponding guest tools installed), still happening.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

I am experiencing the identical issue. A shared folder from \\VBoxSvr contains a collection of various executable files in it, which are installers for various programs, debugging tools, etc. The version of VB is the latest as well as the guest addition in my Windows 10 guest. The Windows 10 version is 1903.

I was able to reproduce the issue on 1809 and 1709.1 as well, with Guest Additions installed, no further Windows Updates.

I have the same issue. Though I'd say it also happens just by browsing to explorer in the folder. This appears to only affect Windows 10 (though it is consistent). Windows 7 VM's still work fine. Also, since 6.0.10, I'm getting tons of bluescreens and memory errors. Went back to 6.0.8 and the associated extension pack, and now everything works again as expected. So this bug was definitely introduced in 6.0.10.
