UEFI Secure boot problem

Setting up a new laptop... ( ASUS GL572VW-dh71) all has been tickety boo, except when I try to get the extension pack to install/work on Virtualbox 6.1.8 ( latest version ) .

I get a message such as this....

P1100458 TERMINAL virtual box problem .jpg

 

I remember initiating a password for something called MOK... but haven`t a clue what that is,.. apart from, maybe something to do with the UEFI secure boot,  as I also had  a message with that, saying that some programs would not work without it ?

 

Totally confused by this, never seen it before... and using LINUX MINT, I have always turned off ( disabled ) UEFI secure boot  and use "Legacy Boot" , with no problems trying to set up Virtual Box..

Can anyone tell me, how to get rid of this MOK, thing,.

In the "set up" page there is this....P1100456 secure boot control.jpg

 

Don`t understand the wording on the right of the panel... regarding Platform Key, in relation to the above problems.

should I just disable both  the Secure Boot control and the Key Management   ?

Presumably that will revert it back to "Legacy Boot".. situation...  ? ? ? ??

I think all you need do is disable the Secure Boot option in your BIOS as shown on the bottom image.
