What does your registry key have for this driver?
I have a self-built VBox installed on two computers with Windows 7, both UEFI,
never had similar problems. The only real difference is, I'm using a
no-hardening build. Maybe something is injected that VB does not like?..
Although I doubt it would show "cannot find file" in this case.
And, I know it's silly, but did you make sure to see the real system32, not the
substituted syswow64? Even experienced users forget about this sometimes.
