Hey Team,

Is it ok to update Virtual Box or should we leave it on the same version as we downloaded it?

You could upgrade if you want. Were you going to stick with version 5 or move to version 6?
I usually set no new tasks, let the queue clear and then do the Virtual Box upgrades.
I glanced at two of your work units and it appears you are set for 3 cpus per VM and only run one at a time. I only have problems if I attempt to run multiple work units (VMs) at once and then sometimes have the VM communication / postponed tasks issue.

I personally stick with VBox supplied with BOINC client. Works ok for me and works well with other projects requiring VBox.

Like Jonathan said you can try and see if it works for you. Keep us posted.
