Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Error! SAV client fails to start

This issue has been solved. See solution.
Recently I started to get the following error when starting Symantec Antivirus client ver 10.1 on my laptop.
"Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Program: C\Program Files\Symantec AntiVirus\Rtvscan.exe
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please conrtact the application's support team for more information."
I have uninstalled through Add/Remove programs as well as manually and scan for spyware without any change. The program starts, the icon shows in the system tray at startup, the error occurs and the AntiVirus service terminates. No new programs were installed recently.
Thanks for your help.
