First Time Running VirtualBox

Hopefully getting it all set ready to use but...........

I want the files (hard drives) to install to my D drive not C. I have had a look in the preferences & changed the general setting to a folder on D.

So when I get to the screenshot do I just continue on?

!SASCore service running all the time, not running Superantispyware?
Found the the above service was running all the time and I only occasionally use SuperSpyware AntiSpyware as a standalone scan. This is solely as backup check to my Antimalwarebytes Pro. May I stop and disable it, and how would I remove it entirely? Thanks Glenn
