AVG update error

When AVG unable to update Virus definitions or when you try to Update AVG, you may get “Invalid Update Control CTF File” error, as  a result updates will not be installed in your computer.

Why AVG showing Such error?

AVG showing such error because Update control files of AVG in your computer may be corrupted, that’s why you are getting that error.

Invalid Update Control CTF File

What’s the Fix?

We need to manually delete the files named avginfoavi.ctf  and avginfowin.ctf files in the Directory location here

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\avg8\update\download

avginfoavi_ctf and avginfowin_ctf

Once these files are deleted, in the next update, AVG automatically downloads these control files and you will have no problems in future in updating AVG.
