Thanks for Your answear. As I wrote, I start more using Windows last few 
days and in Windows 7 I installed virtualbox with Lubuntu 14.04. Today 
when I work on this Lubuntu in VM that issue happend again. In Windows 
it not happens any time. I have really no idea what could be a reason.
It is also probably not problem with config because some time ago I was 
checking it on Ubuntu Live and that was also happend :/

Best regards
