I have Virtual Box 4.2.12 and while doing guest installation (Oracle Linux), virtual box keeps crashing with these message

oracle vm virtual box has stopped working

Application event log has the following logs

Faulting application name: VirtualBox.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5167d6dc
Faulting module name: MSVCR100.dll, version: 10.0.40219.1, time stamp: 0x4d5f034a
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x000000000003c145
Faulting process id: 0x810
Faulting application start time: 0x01ce47ed707ebd66
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VirtualBox.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\MSVCR100.dll

What could be the reason for this?

How can I resolve this?

I would try reinstalling Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package – Ramhound May 3 '13 at 13:34
@Ramhound I have noticed that after I finish installation and when I would want to login for the first time, if I switch to scale mode I am able to login to guest OS without any problem. – user75ponic May 3 '13 at 14:42
