I installed the VirtualBox and it installed VirtualBox Host-Only Network adapter as well. However after reinstalling newer version of VirtualBox the adapter disappeared from list of Wireshark's captured interfaces. How can I restore it?

Did you enable host-only networking after installing the newer version of VirtualBox? If not, you may have to - i.e., perhaps the host-only adapter disappeared from Wireshark's list of interfaces because it disappeared from your installation of VirtualBox.
