ActiveX Control "grows" after updating...

I'm writing an ActiveX Control in C++.  We have code in place to check the user's version of our control, and download the new version if it differs.  However, every time the user updates, the file size (as shown in Downloaded Program files) "grows" by roughly the size of our control ex. our control is ~5MB, after one update it's ~10MB, etc.  Also, viewing the directory in the command line shows several folders named "CONFLICT.1," "CONFLICT.2," etc.  The base Downloaded Program Files folder has our original OCX file, and each CONFLICT folder has a newer version of the control.  What are we doing wrong, and how can we avoid this?  Thanks in advance!
