This is likely happening due to a conflict between Hyper-V (which uninstalling docker does not deactivate) and Virtualbox. Check to see if Hyper-V is enabled. To do this (assuming you're running docker on windows)

  1. go to control panel's "turn Windows features on or off" options
  2. search for Hyper-V. If it's checked, Hyper-V is still enabled, and is likely the cause of the issue. uncheck it, and restart your computer.
  3. try to launch virtualbox again.
