Unable to create virtual machines in VirtualBox

Hi list,

Besides being unable to create the Windows 10 vm (see original message 
at bottom), I further tried creating Linux virtual machines in 
VirtualBox. But no matter what I do, I cannot ping www.google.com from 
the installer, whereas this always used to be a cinch a few months.

Has something changed in the last few months with respect to VirtualBox 
configuration ?

I shall be really grateful to anyone who can get my virtual machines to 
work as expected.

Thank you & Regards,
Manish Jain
