VirtualBox CPU usage 100% on host [closed]

VirtualBox CPU usage 100% on host [closed]

I have installed VirtualBox 3.1.2 (latest) on my Windows 7 (x64). In the VirtualBox I've installed Windows 7 (x64). I have 4 GB RAM installed. The guest has been assigned a 1536 MB RAM. Sometimes the CPU usage on the host goes 100%.

"Since I didn't get any help here nor on the other sites, I checked for other VirtualBox alternatives and came across VMWare. Its performance is really great! Plus I get to see the Windows aero style activated on VMWare! I immediately switched. Deleted the old VMs as they had to be converted from vdi to vmx. I didn't want to take all the trouble.

Currently I have installed VMWare Player which is FREE! It has Windows 7 as guest with aero activated and it works fine. Hope VirtualBox gets improved so that I could sswitch back. But not before they add aero support!"
