[HDGEM] How to fix: vboxclient the virtualbox kernel service is not running. exiting.

This usually happens when you update the Guest's Linux Kernel.
After each update, you need to do:
  • For Host (installing server)
    sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup  
  • For Guest (installing additions)
    sudo /etc/init.d/vboxadd setup  


The above includes ejecting the VBOXADDITIONS cd image on ubuntu and inserting it again from Vbox menu which could solve the problem too.
