I Install VirtualBox for Mac but I do not use it. The VBoxHeadless process still takes a lot of memory. How to stop it permanently and prevent from the automatic startup?

  • Is it set as a login code? If so it will start every time you start your account.

  • you can set certain apps to launch at login or startup. Maybe your app is set to do this?
