Errors related to memory can have a lot of causes, but the most common one is trying to run an application on a computer that doesn't have enough physical memory (RAM). All applications are assigned a certain percentage of RAM during their execution and if that amount isn't enough, they will attempt to access what is known as "protected" memory. When the operating system detects that, it will promptly shut the application down. To fix this problem, follow these steps:

1. Before running VirtualBox, shut down all other programs, such as browsers and word processors.

2. By using the Task Manager, terminate processes which are not essential to the functioning of your computer, such as iTunes, various updaters and so on.

3. Disable your antivirus and/or firewall.

4. Right-click the process shortcut and click the option "Run as administrator"

5. If those steps do not resolve the error, you may need to upgrade your RAM capacity by purchasing additional RAM memory sticks.

If none of the above solutions worked and the error still persists, try uninstalling and reinstalling VirtualBox. If that doesn't help either, you might be looking at a more serious problem, such as corruption of your operating system or damaged hard drive.
