Spybot issue

I have tried for the past several days to update my Spybot software ... it shows "Detection Rules" and "English help for Tea Timer" as two new updates. However, when I try to download updates it keeps giving me bad checksum errors. Anyone else have trouble with this?

Have you tried changing your mirror? Also, I am seeing no such new updates.

The last set of new rules i've found was March 4, 2004

Well, no until you mentioned it, I hadn't tried changing mirrors! But that seems to have solved the problem. Thanks. BTW the updates were dated 5/29 and 5/25 respectively.

Tell me about changing the mirrors in Spybot... Are the mirrors the different sites where the updates are stored, etc? Is there a preferred location to point it to?

I see in the values for the mirrors in the online.ini file.

If you are in the United States you want to change it to the United States Mirror for it to work correctly.

You aren't seeing any new rules because you have a old version. They just released version 1.3, so you need to go download that to get the latest updates.
