What does the Windows message "The service was terminated with the service-specific error xxx" displayed on loading AntiVir mean?

This means that AntiVir could not start due to an error. Please refer to the logfile of AntiVir (avguard.log located in the subdirectory \LOGFILES) or to the event log of your operating system.
