No bridged network adapter is currently selected

Windows 7, 64 bit., VirtualBox 4.3.26.

When adding a bridged network adapter to any virtual machine while running virtual box as normal user, the selection for network interfaces is empty. It also states: "No bridged network adapter is currently selected":

When I run VirtualBox as admin, it works as expected.

The VirtualBox networking driver is setup and installed properly and is enabled for all network interfaces. Example shown here:

I found some references to exactly this kind of issue but it seems that the problem is something different in my case because all the workarounds did not work, including:

  • Reinstallation of VirtualBox, rebooting, ...
  • Delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\Config, reboot, re-install VirtualBox
  • Set a higher value to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\MaxNumFilters (I Use 0x20), reboot, reinstall etc.
