Portable VirtualBox - Running Linux on Windows from USB

Portable VirtualBox was an unofficial Portable Wrapper for Virtual Box, created by Micha. An improved version is also offered by Tibo, the author of the LiLi USB Creator. VirtualBox is officially a product of Oracle. It is an emulator or virtual machine. Often you'll find it used to run various Operating Systems via Disk Images, ISO files and CD or DVDs as a guest OS from within another Host Operating Environment.
