I have installed CVS on eclipse.

I am trying to replace my procedure with the most current version from CVS.

I get: 'CVS Replace' has encoutered an error.
An internal error occured during: "CVS Replace"

In CVS Repository Exploring:
'Fetching children of HEAD' has encoutered a problem.

An internal error occured during: "Fetching children of HEAD"

I had run an antivirus scan on my machine. I believe some files have been purged...

Are you sure you're able to establish connection to your CVS server? Usually "Fetching children of HEAD" errors in my environment were connected to being not actually able to connect to repository (pserver down?, proxy configuration?)

Go to:

Window->Open Perspective->CVS Repository Exploring

You should add your repository in the window CVS Repositories by clicking "Add CVS Repository" button..
If everything goes ok you should be able to unfold your repository tree in this window...
