    what i asked was about how you installed it though, not where you got it from

    was it a .deb file or a .tar.gz that you had to "make/make install" it in the terminal?

    Re: Uninstall Virtualbox

    taken from their own manual

    2.4.3 Uninstallation
    Note: If you have installed VirtualBox inside one or more local zones,
    you must halt all zones that are referencing the VirtualBox device
    (/dev/vboxdrv) before uninstalling VirtualBox. This is required for prop-
    erly unloading the VirtualBox kernel driver without requiring a full system
    reboot. Use the zoneadm command to halt a zone.
    Uninstallation of VirtualBox on Solaris requires root permissions. To perform the
    uninstallation, start a root terminal session and execute:
    pkgrm SUNWvbox
    After confirmation, this will remove VirtualBox from your system.
    To uninstall the VirtualBox kernel interface module, execute:
    pkgrm SUNWvboxkern

    Thank you for the information but I didn't understand it clearly. I had downloaded and installed a .deb package from their website. But it seemed not to uninstall from their own site.

    I used make install to install the package. Hope this would help you help me remove this.
