Those processes look like they're more for volume management than VMs. Before you started playing with the portable VirtualBox, did you do any experiments with other hypervisors? Maybe one that's built into Windows? You could also try downloading and installing the "normal" VirtualBox to see if it gives the same error, it might be a bug in the portable version.

Thank you. I have not tried any other hypervisors (whatever it means . Do you mean inside VirtualBOx settings?
I will give a try with full, non-portable version then. Though I have to admit I am very sceptical about it.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypervisor

VirtualBox is a hypervisor. Other hypervisors would be VMWare, Xen, KVM, Hyper-V, etc. The error is saying you have another hypervisor already running. Maybe another virtualbox installation, or vmware, or hyper-v...something else is already using the hardware virtualization provided by your processor.

Thank you. You are right. I have installed the non-portable version and it worked. Then I uninstalled it an the portable version (same that caused problem/error) of VirtualBoc has became operational.

Strange. Or perhaps not.

Once more great and many thanks.
