Error 3038,104

I have Norton Internet Security 2010 and two days ago this error message started to appear when I try to run a scan.

"An error has occurred with Norton Internet Security

Error 3038,104"

Clicking the One-Click Support option says that an error has been fixed and that I should restart.  I have tried this but it makes no difference.

I have been using Norton without problem since I renewed in November 2010.  I have tried downloading the 20110122-003-v5i32.exe file as suggested on the website but this has not helped.  Any help would be appreciated. (I have have Windows Vista and a 32 bit OS)
