Upgrading Oracle's VirtualBox

As I have posted earlier, VirtualBox is a virtualization software. What it does is allow you to install multiple operating systems in one PC or server.

An update, VirtualBox 4.0.4 was recently released on February 17, 2011. To upgrade VirtualBox 4.0.3 to the latest version:

1. Download VirtualBox 4.0.4 from the official website.

2. Uninstall your existing VirtualBox. Don't worry this will not erase your currently installed Operating Systems.

3. Restart your computer. You will be asked to restart your computer after uninstalling the existing software.

4. Install VirtualBox 4.0.4. Your previous OS installations should still be there.
