Avoid rollback when upgrading Sun Virtual Box

If you try to install or upgrade Sun's VBox on Windows XP, the installer will sometimes roll back due to unsigned drivers or other some such errors. It happened to me even though I had an option to ignore such warnings set in Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Driver Signing

The solution was to right-click the installer and select "Run As". This will give you a dialog where you can uncheck "Protect my computer and data from unauthorized program activity". Found it here.
