Whoa, that's eclectic! Never seen that before.

Start the VM from full power off, not save-state. Run until you see the problem happen, then shut down the VM from within the VM OS if possible. If not possible, close the Virtualbox window for the VM with the Power Off option set.

Please right-click the VM in the main Virtualbox window's VM list, choose Show Log. Save the far left tab's log, zip the log file, and post the zip file, using the forum's Upload Attachment tab.

At a guess (which I'm at liberty to indulge since not much data was provided) I'd say that the window has been scaled, not full screened. A window that fills the screen is not the same as full screen.

I tried reinstalling Vbox multiple times and that does not work. Will this work?

If reinstalling changed the configuration then we'd all lose our VMs every time we upgrade. Obviously that isn't how software works.
