Setting up Virtualbox

Hello Everybody,
I've just tried to install Virtualbox and get the following:

Setting up libvncserver0:amd64 (0.9.9+dfsg-1) ...
Setting up virtualbox (4.1.18.dfsg-2) ...
Stopping VirtualBox kernel modules
Starting VirtualBox kernel modulesNo suitable module for running kernel found ... failed!
  failed!
invoke-rc.d: initscript virtualbox, action "restart" failed.

And VB not only won't start, it doesn't even look as though it's installed until I try to reinstall it when I get the following

Reading package lists...
Building dependency tree...
Reading state information...
virtualbox is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.

All help gratefully received.

Be excellent to each other!

Re: Setting up Virtualbox

Sorry for not replying sooner. No it's not working. And it appears to have the same problem as before :-(
