Virtual Box

I allow my linux machines to update weekly. I have virtual box installed 
on all of them. After the updates yesterday the virtualbox failed with 
these error:

*RTR3InitEx failed with rc=-1912 (rc=-1912)*

The VirtualBox kernel modules do not match this version of VirtualBox. 
The installation of VirtualBox was apparently not successful. Executing

'modprobe vboxdrv'

may correct this. Make sure that you do not mix the OSE version and the 
PUEL version of VirtualBox.

where: supR3HardenedMainInitRuntime what: 4 
VERR_VM_DRIVER_VERSION_MISMATCH (-1912) - The installed support driver 
doesn't match the version of the user.

The virtual machine *'Genealogy'* has terminated unexpectedly during 
startup with exit code 1 (0x1).

Result Code:


NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)

  I tried running modprobe vboxdrv but this did nothing.  I noticed that 
virtualbox is now part of the ubuntu repository.  I originally 
downloaded virtualbox from the Oracle site.

How can OI et my virtual machoines working again?

Do I need to delete the virtualbox software which downloaded with the 
last updates and reinstall the version from the oracle site?

Can anyone help me or tell me where I can get help?

I have one machine that has not been updated and virtual box still 
works. I can move all of my virtual machines to this machine but for 
various reasons I do not want to do this.  I need to know how to correct 
the problem.
