Title: Avast is blocking Virtualbox interface (GUI) to open
Post by: Lisandro on March 25, 2016, 03:13:30 PM
I'm using the latest beta and Avast is not allowing to open Virtualbox.
I've tried to uninstall Virtualbox and install again but it does not help.
How to troubleshoot?

I want my Virtualbox back  :(

Uncheck "Enable hardware-assisted virtualization"...does it help?

Hi Lisandro,

we are using virtual box a lot also, and so far, we haven't encountered this issue. Can you give us more specific info about your system? (windows version (also is it 32/64?), avast edition?, Vbox version, etc.)

Thank you,
B.
