Invalid update control CTF file – AVG 8

Can’t update AVG 8 because it tells you that you have an invalid update control CTF file?  

(I hate error messages that give no clue as to what you should do about it).  Well, here’s the answer I found deep in the AVG user forums:

AVG 8

AVG 8


You need to rename/remove the CTF temp files in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Avg8\update\download….

Only rename/remove the avginfo files that end with .ctf.

Then your updates should be back on track.

Love that free software, hate those crappy errors.

See ya.
