Hi,

I have also come across this thread whilst searching how to resolve the VBoxNetLwf error.

If it is best to make a new thread, please let me know.

I have the latest version of Windows 10 64-bit. I thought first I should update to the latest version of VirtualBox which I've done - 1.6 - however after a fresh boot this morning the error still appears straight away (event ID 12). Is this simply a bug in VBox at the moment, or is it a particular conflict with my system and I should be looking how to correct it?

Cheers,
Kalyori

If you read back through the thread you will find that this error is a red herring and does not cause trouble with your Virtualbox or your host PC in any way. I have tons of these errors and have no trouble with Virtualbox on my hosts.

I continue to get these messages. If Vbox Manager is running or not.

Log Name: System
Source: VBoxNetLwf
Date: 10/25/2019 6:04:42 PM
Event ID: 12
Task Category: None
Level: Error
Keywords: Classic
User: N/A
Computer: DESKTOP-64ED1AI
Description:
The driver detected an internal driver error on \Device\VBoxNetLwf.

They sometimes occur in rapid succession.

Each time causing the P.C. to make the disconnect then connect tones.
That drives folks around here nuts. They ask what's wrong?
Can I at least disable those tones?

I am running version VirtualBox-6.1.4-136177-Win.exe on Windows 10 64 bit home.

These started happening on 10/25/2019. Unfortunately I do not have the installed
version that far back. Perhaps someone knows what version would have been out then?

I would appreciate some help. Thank you.

@KenUnix, those tones are a function of your host OS, not Virtualbox. Use your OS sound controls to turn these tones off. We would also need proof that the tones playing is connected to the error.
If you read through the thread, you will see that some users, like myself, get these 'errors' in the Event Viewer all the time, but never have problems over them.
