Kernel Driver for VirtualBox VMs not installed (Ubuntu 12.04)

When you upgrade the kernel on Ubuntu 12.04 for some reason it does not necessarily upgrade the kernel modules required by VirtualBox to run VMs. To solve this run the fllowing two commands:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure virtualbox-dkms  
sudo modprobe vboxdrv
sudo modprobe vboxnetadp
sudo modprobe vboxnetflt
VBoxManage hostonlyif create
