    If anyone is receiving the message, "Invalid update control CTF file", there's a solution.

    I came across the error myself - But I did my research and found the following things on the AVG Support Site.

    Double-click the My computer icon on your desktop (or open Start -> My Computer)
    Navigate to the following folder:

    Windows XP / 2000:
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\avg8\update\download *

    Windows Vista:
    C:\ProgramData\avg8\update\download *

    Find the avginfoavi.ctf and avginfowin.ctf files and delete them
    Restart your computer.

    Note: If you cannot find the folder ''Application Data'', You need to un-hide all folders / files.

    That should cure it. It worked for me :)
