    System extension cannot be used

    The system extension "/usr/local/vscanx/Extension/virex.kext" was installed improperly and cannot be used. Please try reinstalling it, or contact the product;s vendor for an update.

    I'm assuming you installed Virex. Uninstall the app, reinstall, then repair permissions (in Disk Utility).

    If Virex has been in your system for quite some time now and this problem just popped up recently, then maybe it's an update gone wrong. Sometimes, repairing permissions does the trick. Sometimes, a reinstallation is necessary.
