Description

Upon upgrading from v4.0.2 to 4.0.4 I was unable to launch any VMs. I discovered that vboxdrv.sys, vboxnetadp.sys and vboxusbmon.sys were still from v4.0.2 and one of them was locked. Upon rebooting the machine and manually removing the files I was able to install 4.0.4 successfully.

Should show the error when starting VMs when the old version didn't uninstall correctly.

Uninstalled 4.0.6. Files were left behind in C:\Windows on the host machine. However, none of them were locked.
