Virtualbox crashes on F23 with Kernel 4.4.6

Hi everyone,

I wanted to start my Windows 7 VM that worked just fine with the 4.4.4 kernel, but every time I want to boot into the virtual OS it just crashes, this is the log displayed:

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Windows 7.

The device helper structure version has changed.

If you have upgraded VirtualBox recently, please make sure you have terminated all VMs and upgraded any extension packs. If this error persists, try re-installing VirtualBox. (VERR_PDM_DEVHLPR3_VERSION_MISMATCH).

Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005) Component: ConsoleWrap Interface: IConsole {872da645-4a9b-1727-bee2-5585105b9eed}

I'm running the kernel 4.4.6-300.fc23.x86_64

I already tried reinstalling virtualbox and launching it with kernel-4.4.4 and 4.4.2 and also crashes on both versions.
