I just googled "the virtualbox kernel service is not running" and got several hits. Have you tried google searching?

Yeah, so? It's not an error, it's a message and it goes away. Nothing to worry about.
But if you still want to worry about it:

I just purged virtualbox-guest-x11 virtualbox-guest-utils virtualbox-guest-dkms and that solved the pop-up message.
Do this only if you're running mint natively i.e., not in a virtual box.
Reboot. Done.
