    Nice of you that released a new version without fixing the Avira issue

  • Simon Tuesday, December 22, 2015

    Hi "guest",

    issue you are speaking is not related to VirtualBox code but to Avira Antivirus code.

    You can find a workaround at the following link:


    and evaluate what "Avira" reports on this issue at the following link:


    where the main important message is:

    "Avira has already a new version in the betacenter which solves the issue with virtualbox. It will be released to public after the test. "

    Thank you "guest".

    I updated the VM today and now none of my VM will open. I am seriously freaking out, I have months and months of work involved. If it does open after waiting for 10 minutes, it freezes. Please help me
