    Unable to disable Hyper-V (Windows 10)

    Hyper-V was enabled while installing the Visual Studio Android emulator, which I no longer need. As it turns out, Hyper-V doesn't work well with Virtualbox (see https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/15268) and must be removed.

    As far as I know, the only way to remove it is "Turn Windows Feature On or Off" -> deselect "Hyper-V" and hit OK, which results in the following message.

    (We couldn't complete the features \ Undoing changes \ Don't turn off your computer)

    I think I opened Hyper-V all of one time before deciding not to use it. The only changes I've made since are deleting the only VM, which was installed by VS, and disabling the Virtual Ethernet Adapters (they will no longer enable).

    I successfully disabled IE11 as a test, which worked flawlessly.

    I don't have any restore points to backup from and will probably resort to reinstalling Windows (second time since the 2 months I bought this) if I don't find anything.

    You must uninstall virtual box first, then it will allow you to disable hyper-v

    You just replied to a three month old post!

    Besides I gave the answer anyway. No need to uninstall anything.
