How can I set Windows XP to access the Internet when I have installed VirtualBox with networking (the one that I have to check when installing VirtualBox)?

Because ever since that, I encountered the problem of not being able to access the Internet because of VirtualBox networking. I didn't install the functionality anymore. Can I enable the function without having to sacrifice my Internet connection?

The default networking mode for VirtualBox should enable both host and guest systems to connect to the Internet.

See the section on Network Address Translation (NAT) in the documentation for further details.
