Re-install VirtualBox for use on OSX 10.9 Mavericks

I was in an internal workshop yesterday and was given an image to use in the workshop.  Sadly, it wasn’t a Vagrant scripted image. 😉  Anyways.

I have a Macbook Air (2013)  and had VirtualBox 4.2.18 installed.  The image that I was using was using bridged networking and the virtual machine networking failed upon start-up.

Well…the answer to the story is re-install VirtualBox and all is right with the world.  You won’t notice the problem if using Vagrant…since by default you are using NAT networking.

— Append answer to this:

Make sure that you run the uninstall utility in the install package, reboot, and then run the uninstall utility in the install package to make sure everything is cleaned out…then run install.
