Hmm, I've never had this issue, but here are a few ideas:
- try to disable ntpd and/or ntpdate (which might be run by cron?) on
your guest
- try to disable time sync between host and client on the VBox host:
- try to add "clock=pit" in your guest kernel boot line:

to have a link to microsoft.com posted here :))

Hope this helps.
