Installer hangs when dropbox is also running

I've noticed that the VirtualBox installer hangs when the DropBox daemon is also running. It'll sit there for ages until I kill the DropBox process and then it will continue fine. This has been happening for all the recent versions (I first noticed it about 4 or so minor versions ago). I've not changed the DropBox version ever since I installed it. I never had this hanging problem with the VirtualBox installer before I installed DropBox. I'm running DropBox 0.6.570 on Windows XP SP3. DropBox itself doesn't give any problems -- the only problem I have is that the VirtualBox installer hangs if I don't kill DropBox.
