Could there be some Windows/Vbox update causing the problems? I can update the vboxwrapper version used by ATLAS if someone confirms that this fixes the problems.

Could anybody running one of the affected Windows computers try out the vboxwrapper that comes with CMS?
It's just to find out whether this would solve the problem or not.

Crystal Pellet have tested the wrapper from CMS vboxwrapper_203 with Win10pro successsful.
maeax have tested with Win11pro successful.
So, we can use this wrapper for Atlas in Windows.

vboxwrapper 203 don't use vboxsvc.exe for Virtualbox 6.1.x.
Get 2x of creditpoints, without changing number of Atlas-Tasks for Windows
(two Win11pro and one Win10-Workstation-waiting for upgrade,Hardware is ready).

Changing from HyperThreading to normal CPU using.
Win11pro have trouble with vboxwrapper 203 after crash and reboot after GPU using (too hot!).
