Please attach  SetupAPI & MSI loggs here. Also please specify what other custom networking-related software (like antivirus, firewall, VPN, other hypervizors) you have installed on your host system.

It seems like you have inf cache corrupt. Could you try to uninstall VirtualBox, reboot (just for sanity), remove the %SystemRoot%\inf\INFCACHE.1 file (for XP), reboot and try to install again.
