If you’re encountering problems in Virtualbox on Ubuntu and you feel you need to restart your machine, don’t! You’re on Linux, not windows! You can just close Virtualbox and then restart the Virtualbox kernel module by running the following:

“/etc/init.d/vboxdrv restart”

And then start Virtualbox and try again 🙂
