Question Virtualbox reinstallation error


After a clean reinstall of Ubuntu 12.04, I copied the .VirtualBox file from my old installation into the new Home folder and installed VirtualBox from the software centre. I received NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005.)

It workd fine on my last install, where did I go wrong this time around and how do I rectify the problem, please?

How/where do I mark "Solved?"

I don't see a "mark solved" button or facility. The constant changing of heading also leads to confusion - surely a thread should retain its original heading until solved?
