    I keep getting this message whenever I try to download updates for SS&D:
    Advanced detection library - !!!bad checksum!
    Detection rules - !!!bad checksum!

    This happens quite often and I cannot complete the update download/installation...what causes this error msg? Thank you.

    Try to download the updates from another server.
    For example, select Safer Networking #2 (Europe).

    They have also added a server by the name of BN FileForum that is actually a number of servers in one that they would like folks to try also.

    As for the checksum....below is an FAQ from the Spybot site concerning this matter.

    When updating, why do I get an error message that the "update is forbidden" / "bad checksum!!!"?

    Thats the one I have to use, at first I tried the one closest to me but I kept getting "bad checksum". So I tried Safer Networking #1 then Safer Networking #2, that worked. So I stuck with Safer Networking #2.
