    you have to mount the cd-rom image file (from the same devices menu in your VM) which has the vbox guest additions.
    Its in the vbox folder where you installed vbox and is named "vboxguestadditions.iso"

    This is in your windows guest VM right?
    Then double click the VBoxGuestAdditions and install it. It should also work from the device menu now it is mounted like I described before...

    Haha! Thanks!
    Actually I'm a newbie too though. I only started using virtualbox this week, and linux last week, so I know how confusing it is.
    Anyway, glad it worked for you. Maybe you will help me next time
    Peace
