I have recently installed VirtualBox Version 5.1.14 and created a virtual machine running Ubuntu 16.10 32-bit. The desktop icons show up only after several minutes and, when clicked on, the programm also opens very slowly. I have already checked that 3D acceleration is enabled, but this does not show any improvement. I am looking forward for any solutions to this problem.

    Here's some steps you can try - could not test but most should still be o.k. on both, 16.10 guests, and hosts. – Takkat Feb 16 '17 at 14:45
  • I gave it 1024 MB but also tried 2048 MB – Fran Feb 16 '17 at 14:47
  • Set it to use 2 CPU's, and 2048 RAM, and it should fly. – heynnema Feb 16 '17 at 23:55
