I am trying to install VirtualBox OSE on my computer and use an old image that I used on my old OS (pclinuxos) After I installed, I deleted the folder in my home directory (.VirtualBox) and replaced it with a copy from my backups. When I try to start it, I get the following error:

Could not lock the settings file '/home/henleys/.VirtualBox/VirtualBox.xml' (VERR_ACCESS_DENIED).


Result Code:
0x80004005
Component:
VirtualBox
Interface:
IVirtualBox {76b25f3c-15d4-4785-a9d3-adc6a462beec}

I read that using the command below should fix the problem but it was not successful
sudo chown -R henleys.vboxusers /home/henleys/.VirtualBox

any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks
