Failed to load the launcher DLL

So I got a CS:GO key and I was super amped. When i finished installing I got this error
"Failed to load the launcher DLL:
The specific module could not be found."
I have a clue to the reasoning behind this, but I would like some help to fix this.

I think the reason why I get this error is from my Norton anti virus. It blocks certain DLL's to play cs:go. Unfortunately I don't know how to unblock the DLL's to run the game. When I turn off the anti-virus and I re-installed the game, it worked fine. But right when I turn the anti-virus back on, it won't load due to the error.

I'm wondering if anyone else is having this problem and/or if someone can help me solve this. I would prefer to keep my anti-virus and if there is a way I am open to suggestions. Thanks!

tl;dr

My Norton anti-virus is giving me an error (look at title) and I need help solving it without getting rid of the anti-virus.

Easy fix: Uninstall Norton, Install AVG.

Kinda figured that would be a response. If anyone has any other suggestions I'm open to them but I think that's what I am going to have to do.

I don't use any antivirus - just that built-in Windows 7 and I haven't got any virus from 2 years, I just don't download suspicious applications.

Verify Game Cache. Most likely you're missing launcher.dll
