Oracle VM Virtualbox is best known for its usefulness But It would not be wrong to say that this open source and cross-platform virtualization software is also notorious for its annoying errors.

I have been using Oracle Virtualbox for years to make How to video tutorials. But It stopped working and Since I was busy So I switched to VMware Workstation Player due to lack of time. I was using version 5.1.14 and did not update my copy to latest Virtualbox version.

I had some free time So I decided to look into this matter and After wasting 6 hours and failed attempts, I managed to fix the error and now my copy of Oracle VM Virtualbox is working fine.

In today’s video, I will be sharing Which errors I was facing and What Did I do to fix them? Before proceeding any further, I can’t guarantee it will work for you. But I do hope one of workarounds will solve your problem.

I uninstalled Virtualbox and reinstalled the same version of Oracle Virtualbox. Previous error got fixed and a new error was waiting for me. This time I got error The virtual machine has terminated unexpectedly during startup. Result code 0x80004005.

I downloaded and installed Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013 but It did not work.

After this, I decided to give up on my antivirus Avira antivirus. As I heard of Avira that This antivirus program creates problems for VirtualBox. I uninstalled Avira antivirus from my PC. But removing my antivirus did not help me to fix the issue.

At the end, There was only option to give a try to newer version of Oracle Virtualbox VM. I downloaded and installed the latest version Virtualbox 5.2.4. Fortunately, This time I managed to fix the error and I have reinstalled Avira free version and everything is working fine so far no issue.
