The “Rtvscan.exe” file is part of the real-time scanning feature of Symantec Endpoint Protection and Symantec Internet Security suite. The program starts automatically with Windows and runs in the background. If you are seeing this error when you start the computer and you are using a Symantec product, it means the program is not functioning correctly and has a problem.

To fix the problem, try reinstalling the product. Download Norton Removal Tool and run it. This tool can be used to completely remove a failed installation of Norton or a damaged product. If your Symantec product is working properly before, this tool will help you fix the problem. The tool will remove installations of all Norton products from your computer from 2003 and up.

In case your version can’t be removed by this tool, download the free version of Revo Uninstaller instead and install it. Once installed, start Revo Uninstaller then select your Symantec product among the applications and click “Uninstall”. Follow the normal uninstall process. When you are prompted to restart the computer, click to restart later.

When uninstall is complete, click “Scan” to scan your computer for any leftover files and delete everything it finds. This removes everything the program created on your computer. When it is finished, close Revo Uninstaller then restart the computer. After booting, download the free version of CCleaner and install it. Once installed, start CCleaner and clean your system.

When it is finished, close CCleaner and install your Symantec product back. See if this works. If you want to convert CCleaner to Pro, download the codes and follow the instructions.
