Attention: windowsForum members:
Included with this posting is one Paint 3D tempsnip image file ( below ) for your consideration. It is:

This image shows the error message I receive when I attempt to start my Oracle VM VirtualBox Debian version 9.8 ( it was recently upgraded from version 9.5 ) Linux virtual machine ( part of the error message is enclosed in a red rectangle ( above )). Can anyone tell me why I am unable to start the above-mentioned virtual machine ( I also recently updated my version of Oracle VM VirtualBox )? Thank you ( see Colossians 3:15, for example ) for your help and your patience. Keep in touch. :)

Sincerely in Christ,

Either you have hyper-v installed or hyper-v autolaunch is enabled in BCD.

In control Panel > programs and features > windows features make sure hyper-v is not installed.

For the auto launch setting, from an elevated command prompt, type bcdeedit /enum. If you see hypervisorlaunchtype auto you'll need to disable that by typing bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off then reboot your computer
