Can not load the scan engine
After my posting »Updater Log« was solved early last week Antivirus worked fine until two days ago (the date the log shows the latest update). When I checked today the following problem was back: »Virus Protection« and »Idle Time Scan« were turned off and could not be switched on. When trying to switch on Virus Protection the error msg »Antivirus Autoprotect could not load the scan engine« appeared, the same thing happened when trying to manually initiate a scan.... I have also tried to run the Updater manually, however it showed »up to date«.
Since I didn't want to be unprotected I have uninstalled and re-installed (for the fourth time) Antivirus - after installation and a manual update the same error msg appeared: »Antivirus Auto Protect could not load the scan engine« - I initiated another update and now it seems to work for the moment, but I am sure the problem will return soon. It seems to have to do with the Updater, after certain updates the path to scan engine seems to get lost. Please help!
I am using MacBook Pro, System 10.7.4, Norton Antivirus 12.2. (76) and Updater 6.1.1 (6)
