Windows 4.3.22 specifically for errors due to security

Postby socratis » 13. Feb 2015, 12:42

Continuation of https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=64777 for VirtualBox version 4.3.22.

This topic is specifically for Windows users that may still have issues seen in version 4.3.22 caused by security being strengthened.

If you want to be taken seriously you need to post a few items as attachments (compressed is preferred)

    1) Host OS and version
    2) VBoxStartup.log (zipped)
    3) Mention any host anti-virus, firewalls, protection software, and debugging programs etc which might be relevant.

As in the previous (4.3.14 through 4.3.20) discussions, the purpose of this topic is to gather diagnostic data needed to solve the hardening issues, and nothing else. Wibble posts, opinion posts, and posts that don't include necessary diagnostics will most likely be deleted. If a test build is created then you'll be expected to have tried it before you post.

Please be explicit about errors. Don't say "same as xxxxx". See list above for what's required.

Test builds (when available) can be found here: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Testbuilds


NOTE 12th Dec: if you have a Windows 7 host that started failing in the last few days then this is most like due to buggy Windows update KB3004394. Microsoft have released a fix here. Do not post about your problem until you have tried their fix. While this Windows bug does trip over the VirtualBox hardening feature, it is not caused by it, and therefore is not a problem that should be discussed in this topic.

I'm still having the same issue with VirtualBox 4.3.22 starting VM guests. I can successfully install and run VM guests on VirtualBox 4.3.12. I have Avecto Privilege Guard 3.8.320 installed on my machine by corporate policy. It looks like the PGDriver.sys driver inserts itself in every executable process to potentially elevate processes like sudo or runas.

If I change the registry setting HKLM\software\Avecto\privilege guard client\HookLoadMethod from 0x3 to 0x2 and reboot VirtualBox 4.3.22 works. Avecto support says that the 0x2 method uses a legacy appinit_dlls method to inject the DLL used for XP and can optionally be used on Win7 but this method is not available on Windows 8 and above. The new PGDriver.sys driver method is designed for Win7 and above. I have submitted a support ticket to Avecto support but it sounds like VirtualBox has needed to make compromises for AV-like security software.

Another side issue is that the VirtualBox.exe process is not able to close and the computer will need to have the power button held for 10 seconds for force the power off.

Host: Windows 7 64-bit SP1
Special security software: Avecto Privilege Guard 3.8.320 installed with HookLoadMethod = 3 which uses the PGDriver.sys driver

I think I have enough information to submit a bug report. How would I do that?

1) Windows 7 x64 SP1
2) In attach
3) Sandboxie, TrueCrypt, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Uninstalled long ago but one remaining driver appeared in previous log, deleting it doesn't help)

Other security software previously installed I'm not likely to be able to list one by one.

Can't start any VM with VirtualBox version greater than V4.3.16. The log was created with VirtualBox V4.3.22 r98236.
The issue still remains after applying KB3024777 or after uninstalling KB3004394.

1) Win7 x64
2) Attached
3) McAffee AntiVirus, Windows-Firewall

4.3.22 is Buggy and it is maybe not another bug according to KB3004394.
Because:
I run vbox 4.3.20 until I installed vbox 4.3.22 flawless. I used it to test the W10TP.
With vbox 4.3.20 it runs fine, but after updating/installing 4.3.22 the W10TP did not work any more.
Any other VM did also not launch.

Got this error message, too:
Driver is probably stuck stopping/starting. Try 'sc.exe query vboxdrv' to get more information about its state. Rebooting may actually help.

Same attachment as user "nobother"

thx so far

A (continuing) success story:

On a Windows 8.1 64 bit host (fully patched) running Comodo Internet Security 8.1.0.4426, Virtual Box 4.3.22.98236 is continuing to work correctly. I've run Linux (Mint) and XP (32 bit) guests ok. Comodo seems to have been OK with most of the more recent releases. I will try 4.3.22 with Symantec 12.1 RU5 later today and post results.
