    You need to do what virtual box tells you - add your user to the group
    vboxusers, open a terminal and type (do not type USER!!!)
    Code:
    sudo usermod -A vboxusers USER
    replace USER with your login name.
    Logout and login again.

    Please confirm for me that Virtual Box is actually installed.

    Tell me your username, the one you login with.

    Carl following solved my problem

    Open YaST -> Security and Users -> UserManagement, and edit your user and add them to the vboxusers group. To do this, select your user name, click on Edit, switch to the Details tab and check the vboxusers check box.
    Reboot.

    now i am having another problem.it is also related to this.if you like to see my problem go to the following link:

    Sorry this should have been
    sudo /usr/sbin/usermod -A vboxusers ....
    but you already used yast to do the same so ignore it.
