/dev/vboxdrv and /dev/vboxnetctl going missing after reboot

Whenever I reboot my server I get the following error when starting VirtualBox:
VBoxManage startvm Win-VM --type gui
WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module available for the current kernel (2.6.34-12-desktop) or it failed to load. Please recompile the kernel module and install it by sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed. Oracle VM VirtualBox Command Line Management Interface Version 3.2.8 (C) 2005-2010 Oracle Corporation All rights reserved.
Waiting for the VM to power on ERROR: The virtual machine 'Win-VM' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component Machine, interface IMachine, callee
which is caused by /dev/vboxdrv and /dev/vboxnetctl going missing after reboot. Running sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup reinstates the missing devices and I can run VirtualBox.
