[Resolved] Virtualbox not working on 3 computers

Postby Electric Tom » 27. Aug 2019, 22:09

I have tried installing the new version of virtualbox on three different Windows 10 computers, and when I create a vm I get the same error message on all three computers. I have tried different iso's and different os's. I have tried turning hyper-v on and off in the features. I have tried going into the bios and turning the virtualization settings on and off. I have tried installing and reinstalling virtualbox. Virtualbox used to work on at least one of the computers, but it has been a long time since I used it.

The error message is something like
"The virtual machine 'blank' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code -1073741819 (0x0000005) More details may be available in ...log.

Result code E_FAIL (0x80004005)

Thanks for any help.

We'd need that '...log' to see what might be up. :lol:

It looks like it was the antivirus. Kind of need my antivirus so I'm not sure what I need to do to remedy this.

Too bad. Sorry we can't help.

Got it going. Had to contact the antivirus company, and make some exclusions in a memory protection area.

Marking as [Resolved], although I have the feeling that a new, more realistic tag should be applied: [ItsThoseFreaking3rdPartyLeachAppsYetAgain]... :roll:
