    I am new to this forum, so bear with me. I have been using AVG successfully for years & updating when available.
    I regularly have problems with a pop up box, from AVG, saying -' invalid update control CTF file.'

    Sometimes this prevents my daily updates, other times it doesn't.

    can you tell me what this message means? Should I do something...or ignore it??

    many thanks

    I was redirected to the AVG free forum - thank you!

    Just delete everything with .ctf extension in folder
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\avg8\update\download
    Then run update as usual and all sorted!

    So that is what I have done!

    Cheers!
