After upgrading to
Build 14295.rs1_release.160318-1628, virtualbox won't start.
Got this in the Event Viewer:

At first I was running 5.0.14 version but when this happened I upgraded to 5.0.16 but problem still remains. Anyone got this issue?
Just found out it's possible to roll back to previous build (in my case it's version 1511, os build 10586.164)
Settings -> Recovery -> Go back to an earlier build and virtualbox working again.
There were changes in Build 14295.rs1_release.160318-1628 that broke Virtualbox, but the Virtualbox team are aware of the issues and the latest test builds have corrected this. This file works for me: https://www.virtualbox.org/download/testcase/VirtualBox-5.0.17-106344-Win.exe
If you want further info see here: https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/15245 https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=76813 feedback-hub:?contextid=156&feedbackid=81357525-4f41-4507-9f4d-35f1ca987e52&form=1&src=2 (paste link into explorer within windows)
Or for anyone else who finds Virtualbox issues on Win 10, see here and wants to try the latest test build, it should be available here: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Testbuilds
I had the same issue when I updated windows 10. It is not even open any window when I try to open the VM application. So I just downloaded
VM latest version from
and installed. On run it showed all the previous VM images that I installed. It worked.
You need to make sure that the original Virtual machine folder under the directory OS(C:)/users/user_name/VirtualBox_VMs is intact.
Uninstall and reinstall the current version of VirtualBox.
The new version should point to this folder and your old Vms will be intact.
