I'm trying to get rid of the VirtualBox bridged networking driver so I can install Online Armor.

So far all the solutions I've found involving the registry - and I'd rather not touching it.

Anyone has an idea?

If you'renrunning your Guest(s) as client only (versus server) why not just use NAT instead of Bridged networking? Or am I misunderstanding your problem and need to physically remove the V-Box bridged driver?

I uninstalled VirtualBox, but its bridged networking driver stuck.

So I need guidance to remove it.

Can you find/uninstall it in Device Mgr? ... I've had success removing orphaned drivers etc from uninstalled progs with Autoruns - aamof I specifically remember finding V-Box driver(s) left behind with it.

HTH :)

I'm not seeing anything explicitly marked with VirtualBox in Device Manager - only one I've suspected is "Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter".

How about "Unknown device(s)"  with (or without) a VB hardware ID? In Device Manager > view > show hidden devices.... anything there?

 

ETA: You've probably already tried this but have you re-installed & then uninstalled again, maybe with REVO will be more thorough? Just a thought.

"You can open a Command Prompt as administrator and use the command sc delete VBoxNetFlt to delete the Virtual Box network filter driver to make it easier. No need to directly edit the registry. wink.png

Also, please note that if you have Virtual Box and Emsisoft Internet Security installed that there will more than likely be random BSoD issues. Depending on your circumstances, it might just be easier to use VMware Player (it does still come in a free version for personal use). "

 

Is this any help? Found it when viewing another board.

I'll try the command.

I'm aware of the issue with EIS though - Kaspersky user here.

Thank you.
