Virtual box critical Error

I wonder what cause this error, I just run VirtualBox after installation, I tried re-installing, repairing, upgrading version, downgrading version. But this error keeps coming up.

According to this article, this can be fixed like so:

  1. Open a standard command line ( Run > cmd )
  2. Run: cd C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox
  3. Run: VBoxSVC /ReRegServer
  4. Run: regsvr32 VBoxC.dll

Make sure to run the Command Prompt as an Administrator.

But I find it confusing that this happens directly after installation. You may want to report this issue on the VirtualBox Bugtracker.

Thank you for your help, but I can't do step 3, and when i do step 4 it give me the following message "The module "VBoxC.dll" was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80070005" . And i don't know why but i can't access www.virtualbox.org any page from this domain. –  Zack Titan Jul 28 '12 at 10:25
@TitanZack: Why can't you do step 3? –  Oliver Salzburg Jul 28 '12 at 12:40
I can't do that because cmd says VBoxSVC is not recognized as a command. By the way do you have any idea why i can't access www.virtualbox.org and any of it's subdomain? –  Zack Titan Jul 28 '12 at 14:32
@TitanZack: Try VBoxSVC.exe. No idea about the connection problem. Site works fine here. –  Oliver Salzburg Jul 28 '12 at 14:52
I don't have that file. –  Zack Titan Jul 29 '12 at 14:38

This error occurred with my win 7 64 bit too.

I came to a conclusion that this problem occurred due to installation of youwave for android on my pc.

They both have some conflicts so only any one can be installed at a time.
