How To Uninstall VirtualBox On Windows PC

In this article we will try to teach you how to Uninstall VirtualBox On Windows. VirtualBox is open source software for virtualizing the x86 computer architecture. It acts as a hypervisor and creates a VM (virtual machine) on which the user can run another OS (operating system). The operating system that VirtualBox runs on is referred to as the “host” operating system. The operating system running in the VM is referred to as the “guest” operating system. VirtualBox supports Windows, Linux or macOS as host operating system. When configuring a virtual machine, the user can specify how many CPU cores and how much RAM and disk space to allocate to the VM. If the VM is running, it can be “paused”. The system execution is frozen at this point and the user can use it again later.

In general, a Virtual Box is a software virtualization package that can be installed on any operating system as application software. This is one of the many benefits of Virtual Box. It allows installing additional operating systems as a guest operating system. It can then create and manage free guest virtual machines, each with a guest operating system and its virtual environment.
