I recently added a virtual machine, VirtualBox, and installed Windows 7 running under Windows 10. I have an Intel i7-7700K CPU @4.2ghz. I am surprised to see that everything in the virtual machine is running so slowly. When I look at the performance graph with Task Manager, it is typically using 5-6% CPU, sometimes less, when otherwise idle. When reading my email, it occasionally jumps to 12%.. Why should this VM be running so slowly?
When I setup the virtual machine, I selected dynamic memory allocation beginning at 512mb. The task manager graph shows memory usage at the top of the graph, Would it be better to assign memory specific for this application? I have a total of 16gb RAM.
