I found the correct version of libcrypto among my Adobe Reader files in /opt.
I have reinstalled the latest VirtualBox. I have installed the extension pack
several times, but it isn't recognized.The Windows guest runs happily but
doesn't make the two USB devices available as it should. The Ubuntu guest
crashes with a message that it was last closed down with USB 2.0 enabled and I
