VirtualBox Host-Only Network Adapter prevents multicast traffic

After installing Oracle VirtualBox and VirtualBox installing the "VirtualBox Host-Only Network" on my Windows 7 64-bit machine, I am no longer able to receive multicast streams on the host machine. This problem occurs even when VirtualBox is not running.
To get around this issue, I have to go into Network Connections everytime I want to stream from a multicast source and disable the VirtualBox Host-Only Network adapter. I then have to remember to reenable it everytime I wish to use VirtualBox.
