After Installing VirtualBox on Windows 7, WiFi radio is off

After installing VirtualBox 4.1.12 on Windows 7 then when ever my HP EliteBook 8460p wakes up the WiFi radio is off and I have to open Windows Mobility Center (WinKey+X) and turn it back on. It is quite annoying. I have seen this on previous versions of Virtual Box, but it was not until many of my co-workers began installing VirtualBox and immediately after started seeing the same behavior that I finally figured out when the problem started. Our IT department cannot figure out the solution, and of course just fall back to re-installing the Windows 7 OS... and of course the problem goes away until I need VirtualBox to be installed again.
