I'm currently running VMWare on three seperate systems. On two of them, it works wonderfullly. On the third (the one with the most CPU and RAM) it locks the system base sytem up for 4-5 seconds every 2 minutes or so. I uninstalled it, the problem went away. When I re-installed it, the problem came back. All three systems are running Windows XP as the base system. Any thoughts on why this is occuring?
I should mention, this occurs whether VMWare is actively running or not (it's always running something in the background, but it happens whether I have the program started or not).
