What is vboxservice.exe?

Part of Oracle VM VirtualBox Guest Additions by Oracle

What is it?

VirtualBox Guest Additions Service is part of Oracle VM VirtualBox, an x86 virtualization software package developed by Oracle Corporation as part of its family of virtualization products. Oracle VM VirtualBox is installed on an existing host operating system as an application; this host application allows additional guest operating systems, each known as a Guest OS, to be loaded and run, each with its own virtual environment.
Description of vboxservice.exe from Oracle
VirtualBox is powerful Cross-platform Virtualization Software for x86-based systems. "Cross-platform" means that it installs on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and Solaris x86 computers. And "Virtualization Software" means that you can create and run multiple Virtual Machines, running different operating systems, on the same computer at the same time. For example, you can run Windows and Linux on your Mac, run Linux and Solaris on your Windows PC, or run Windows on you Linux systems.
