It was the thought process if I checked the 3.6 (even the beta version) to see if i would experience the same issue is why I tried.  Planning on taking the original drive which is at 3.4 and 4.12 and doing a clean install anyway. I've found that doing this instead of an upgrade, it cleans out the system which appears to run better overall.  Two different drives running each running a different version.

 :) My wait is over.  I downloaded the 3.6 final on the 30th and installed this morning.  Took about 20 minutes to run the entire install including updates.  The Lite Software went through with a breeze.  I included VirtualBox and Wine too.
Install of Virtualbox with the Linux Mint 18.2 XFCE OS is running right now doing final updates.
I believe the install of Kernel 4.12 back in July is what gave me the issues.  Believe that kernel was put into a different location so VirtualBox couldn't configure.  When I tried the beta 3.6, everything was good, so knew the final 3.6 was going to be my answer.
I'm pleased with the wallpapers, great pictures.  All is running well on this system and I'm looking forward to lots of fun.
My thanks to all for their suggestions and their moral support. 

And to think i just recycled a Zenith Z-100 that would only run DOS 3.3, Windows 1.03, and would just about run DBase 4 and a mouse on 512mb of ram.  Amazing how things have improved over the past years.

Greetings,

VirtualBox has been running exceptionally well.  I've loaded CAINE, Peppermint 8, Sabayon XFCE, Regular XFCE and Zorin.  Currenlty working on Alpine, then onto Chapeau.  I couldn't run the basic setting, so upped memory to 1024 and video to 12mb.  With those no issues.  LL3.6 is running well and no issues noted.  I've not changed my repositories for the ones which are set work fine for me.

Again thanks to all for suggestions and comments.  Greatly appreciated.

Hello BarryVG,

good to read you have LL 3.6 up and running with VirtualBox set up how is good for your needs :)

CAINE it is a forensics one I think yes ?
I hear of it mentioned before, they used it CAINE and DEFT.
