Upgrade: BSOD when trying to remove 1.3.8 from WinXP

Description

When trying to remove VirtualBox 1.3.8 from Windows XP (SP2, all patches) host system, the computer hangs with a Blue Screen of Death and following information:

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

STOP: 0x00000050

sfsync04.sys

sfsync04.sys apparently is StarForce Protection Synchronization Driver v.4.0.0.0

It appears that VirtualBox interferes with StarForce protection system that is used to protect many games (and is probably therefore installed on my system some time after installing VirtualBox).

For your consideration: I am not sure, if this should be considered as a bug, but thought it should be reported, especially since this leaves system in volatile state - VBox program files are deleted and it is impossible either to repair installation or continue deinstall (both result in repeated BSOD).

It could be the old usb monitor filter. We have moved away from it a long time ago. Sorry for the inconvience, but there's nothing we can do about it now.
