Hi. Sometimes when starting a machine, it errors:

"Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Win7.

The virtual machine 'Win7' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 (0x1). More details may be available in 'D:\Documents and Settings\xxxxx\VirtualBox VMs\Win7\Logs\VBoxHardening.log'.

Result Code: E_FAIL (0x80004005)
Component: MachineWrap
Interface: IMachine {85cd948e-a71f-4289-281e-0ca7ad48cd89}"

Logs attached. Thanks

Please read really carefully the following FAQ: Diagnosing VirtualBox Hardening Issues for some guidelines/ideas.

I'd start with completely uninstalling TrendMicro...

e10.8d0: \SystemRoot\System32\drivers\tmcomm.sys:

e10.8d0: ProductName: Trend Micro Eyes

Thanks for the reply. I dont even have Trend Micro, but might have installed it once. I deleted that file and we'll see what happens.

Most likely thing to happen: the file is automatically restored and your problem continues.

IME you can't just just delete AV executables. You have to uninstall it properly, and reboot the host.

What I meant is that I dont currently have it installed but may have once installed it (and then uninstalled it). The file is still gone.
