Do you by any chance have Windows XP Mode or Microsoft Virtual PC installed on the same machine?

I did have Windows XP mode installed, I followed the tutorial in this forum to delete it as I found it too slow. Would there still be some remnants?
Thanks for replying

There shouldn't be any problems if you have rebooted the box. If you are still seeing problems....I would suggest that you completely uninstall Vbox...reboot...and then reinstall it.
