    You're welcome.

    Good luck trying it out.
    Make sure you have the CPU virtualization feature (VT-x) enabled in the BIOS, this will enhance the VM performance.
    I don'r really want to mess about much with my BIOS too much just in case, but VBox should work whatever happens coz I had VBox on my old Vista and I didn't need to mess about with the BIOS at all. I'm going to get the VBox 4.2.22 like you recommended earlier. I guess the VT-x is optional to enhance Virtualization, but really all I want to do is run Virtual Machines. I don't really mind if it's got really good graphics. As long as 1GB RAM works with 1 CPU Core (I have 4 on my host) on a 64 bit Win2k8 R2 I'm perfectly fine

    I managed to find this on the VirtualBox site, so I can now guarantee that it should work. Thanks again everyone for your help and I am now confident enough to return to VirtualBox.
