Cleanup or purge configuration files from packages

When removing packages, like sudo apt-get remove virtualbox-guest-utils, it may leave configuration files in the system. This can be verified by running dpkg -l | grep 'virtualbox' for example. If the first string shows rc (removed, configuration files present) then purging is necessary, like so:

$: sudo lshw -class memory
