Thanks for that Jim, I have the same problem I even uninstalled it, downloaded it again, worked once then got the invalid ctf file again. ::bigsmile:

Hi

Yes, it caught me out several times, I did as you then went looking for the solution.. no mention of this on the AVG website.. :RollEyes:

You may have to delete the CTF files again so keep it handy on the desk top.. bit of a pain.. but it works..

Jim
