Paperport runtime error

We have Paperport 9 running on a Win 2000 sp4 machine.
Everything was running fine until I upgraded our antivirus software
from SAV 9 to SAV 10
Ever since that we get a  MS Visual C++ Runtime error and paperport will not open.
I uninstalled the SAV and reinstalled paperport and paperport would open.
But...  When the computer is rebooted I get the same error again
and can only get it working again if I uninstall PaperPort, Reboot then reinstall paperport.
Right now SAV 10 is not installed on this system.
I have checked the updates for paperport through the help menu and it says
we are up to date.

Can anyone help me out with this?

Greetings, pauls681 !

SAV 10 has lots of hooks in your system. You may need to manually uninstall SAV 10.

Follow the link that fits your configuration.

Best wishes!

Please scan the registry for any occurrence of symantec antivirus -- after making a backup of the registry, delete all these symantec registry keys - when they are gone, you will probably have to reinstall service pack 2, and turn off automatic updates, and then reinstall the Paperport software, use the latest update from the web -- that should get you back to running again.  Now you should consider installing McAfee Antivirus, it does not hae these compatibilities like Symantec which has a whole series of incompatibilities.  Good luck.

reinstall service pack 2??
what are u refering to?
I did use symantecs nonav program but that may not work completly
with ver 10. I will check the reg. and check th link to symantecs site.
Symnantec is what we use here. Im not switching to Mcafee
because of one issue out of 40 pc's.

Pauls681,

NoNav does not completely uninstall SAV 10. That is why I gave you the manual method.  Use NoNAV to get most of it.  And follow manual method to remove the rest.

pauls681,

You said SAV 10 cause the problem of Paperport not working.  You uninstall SAV 10, and Paperort still does not work.  Perform a system restore back to a date with Paperport was working and before you installed SAV 10.

There are parts of SAV 10 affecting your computer. With Windows 2000 and no system restore,  you can use NoNAV to remove most of SAV 10, the use Windows Search and registry editor to find the other parts and remove them.
