    How many andwhat do you need? I've heard the AVG site recommends you clean out the Update folder once in a while. :)

    So it's safe to delete the files in the AVG Update Folder? I have 64 update files in the folder right now.

    Here's bellgamin's post, let's see what others may think. I can't find the .ctf file they recommend to keep:

    Now that AVG has started making rather frequent updates, you might want to clean out your computer's AVG update file from time to time. The AVG site [grisoft.com] recommends you to do so.

    If your AVG file is located at c:\Program Files, then the folder you want to clean out would be C:\Program Files\AVG\UPDATE

    All that you need to keep in that folder is the .ctf file and the latest .bin update file.

    With the 1/10/03 update, your latest update will be d602n1h9.bin. You can delete all earlier updates. KEEP the .ctf file.
