I have a vmware workstation 7 running backtrack 5r2 & windows xp, backtrack uses 2GB of ram & xp uses 1GB, the host O.S system is HP with 4GB Ram, 320 GB HDD, windows 7 ultimate. the virtual machine hangs & freez the guest & host while i practice penetration testing, before i used virtual box everything ran super fine, are there any settings to be applied ? please suggest me if you have any any idea regarding this issue.

Perhaps try upgrading your computer to more RAM. I have 8GB of RAM in my computer at home, with Vmware workstation 7, running x2 virtual machines concurrently, without any issues.

Also how many cores does your CPU have? If it has more than 2 cores, try allocating some of them to your VMs well, that will help boost their performance too.
