Upgrade: BSOD when trying to remove 1.3.8 from WinXP

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:
sfsync04.sys apparently is StarForce Protection Synchronization Driver v.18.104.22.168
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).
