VirtualBox Host-Only Adapter Error With Windows 10

After upgrading to Windows 10 from Windows 7, I ran into an issue with VirtualBox (version 5.0.0r101573) and my virtual machines. None of them would boot up. After looking in the VirtualBox preferences (not Settings for each VM), I discovered my host-only adapters were completely gone. Figuring the upgrade removed these drivers from the system, I would simply add them back and move along. No big deal, right? Wrong.

When I attempted to add a new host-only adapter, VirtualBox gave me the error:

Failed to create the host network interface.
