Error Starting Virtual Machine

I initially installed the VirtualBox-4.3.20-96997-Win in January this year. It was working fine for about a month, the period I was using it.

However, today, after a gap of about 2 months when I again wanted to use it, it refused to open and flashed the error message mentioned below. I read somewhere that reinstalling helps in solving this problem and so I did exactly that by first using the same version and when that didn't work I downloaded the recent version (VirtualBox-4.3.26-98988-Win) and installed it. However it too is displaying the same message now.

Can someone help me in solving this problem?

System OS: Windows Vista SP1
Firewall/Antivirus: Yes (Windows/Avira respectively)
OS to run in VM: Ubuntu

@masera - I expect that 4 years on you may have a problem that results in the same error dialog to be displayed but I would be very surprised if it has the same root cause. It would be much better if you could open your own topic and describe in details the problem that you do have.

Locking it, off you go along with the rest of the zombies...
