Have a problem on one computer that keeps having invalid control file errors when updating AVG8.  I did the regular delete the ctf file trick ran an update which worked okay but the problem returns next reboot.

Does anyone have any ideas? This is on a laptop running vista premium.

Ive come across a few XP systems with a similar problem, but no idea whats causing it apart from corrupt files from Grisoft.
I delete the CTF, run updates again, and usually fine for another week or two.

There are a few problems with some of the update files since AVG8 came out. Always asking for the PC to be restarted etc.

I pay for the Prof Network version and had logged a fault with AVG. The solution was a full removal and reinstall on each PC having problems. AVG sent the following link to remove AVG.

=========================================================
To successfully uninstall AVG 8.0, please proceed as follows: - Download the AVG service utility from this location to your computer(we recommend saving it to your desktop) and run it.
