Program unable to run after Norton Deleted SOSGENERALCONTROLS.OCX

I have this program installed in my pc that uses SOSGENERALCONTROLS.OCX. But during one of the regular virus scan, this system file SOSGENERALCONTROLS.OCX was actually deleted without any warning. Since then, i am able to run this program. Even when i reinstall, it will encounter program unable to rename this installation file also. 
The only solution i have is to uninstall symantec anti-virus, delete the registry, then i be able to install back my program successfully.
Any experts out there to solve my problem? thanks.
