Failed to create COM object - 0x80040154

When I try to run a Virtual Machine I get this error:
Failed to create the VirtualBoxClient COM object. The application will now terminate. Details: Callee RC: REGDB_E_CLASSNOTREG (0x80040154)
After the error the Virtual Machine will not start. The current virtual machine is a newly created Windows 8.1, but nothing has been installed yet because it won't launch. Host is Windows 7 x64 and I am running VirtualBox 5.0.0
I've tried repairing my .net with dotNETfx. I have also tried re-registering the VBoxSvc. I did a full reinstall and deleted the virtual box folders in C:\Users\UserName\
This error was occurring in the most recent stable 4.x version.
I have a forum thread open here: https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=68992
I will keep trying to fix it on my own, but any help is appreciated.
