Encountering error while downloading 'Virus scan failed'

I have got a problem with downloading files on my computer. every time it's incomplete with the message, Failed - Virusscan failed. I had no problem with this until last week. What can i do to fix this problem? I think it has to do with the anti-virus program. I have tried all the Windows fixes, but it doesn't work.
