Errorcode: 7 Antivir is turned off

I was working on my PC when I got a message that "Antivir Desktop reports that it was turned off." I turned it on immediately, it asked if I trusted it, I said yes, then I got a messages that said "Setup could not determine the feature control file or was not able to read it correctly. [Errorcode:7]

This has never happened before. I can't get Antivir to run (I have Antivir Premium). I noticed that I have today's latest update (version with today's date). Please help - my PC is totally unprotected (except by the Microsoft firewall). All I run is the Microsoft firewall - I don't run Security Essentials and I have been running Antivir with the MS firewall just fine for a year now.

Was there a problem with today's update? Thanks for your help.

- I wanted to add that I get the same error when I tried to uninstall it. I figured I should uninstall, download the latest version then reinstall, but I get this same error code the second I click Uninstall.
