Spybot S&D Bad Checksum

Just tried to update Spybot S&D, which I've been using for ages, and all the updates came back "Bad Checksum".

Reinstalled it and tried again - Bad Checksum.

Does any of you guys who follow these things know what's going on - I assume it's something at their end rather than mine.?

cant give you a reason why i dont know, maybe its just an overload when a new update comes out

When this happens, just select another download location and it should be fine. Sometimes updates are not trannsfered to the mirrors correctly and this problem occurs. I tend to find EON (Australia) is the best to download from.

Well, I didn't even know you could choose.

Australia was no good either, but one of the Europe ones worked.
Thank you Peter. Tongue
