Shows that I didn't test this on a Windows system without VirtualBox :(

That log message should be relaxed to info or debug level or even be
removed entirely as this is not error at all, as it just means that
VirtualBox is not installed.

I'll remove this line entirely. This will result in the same behavior
for the XPCOM and MSCOM glue when VirtualBox is not installed.
VBoxCGlueInit fails silently making vboxRegister registering the dummy
driver.
