I tried to use the intergrated updater to update my definitions in Spybot: Search and Destroy, however after waiting for several minutes, it will stop updating and say '!Bad Checksum!!!' in the info area of the download. Any ideas?

Yeah I get that to, I think it keeps making mistakes with its searching for updates.... just ignore it... youve probably got the most updated version if it says that. Wait for the next update.

Usually server overload when new updates are released, try a different download mirror

GENERALLY...when i get the checksum error in Spybot...i just keep searching for updates ( i believe that every time you press the search for updates button it chooses a different download location)...EVENTUALLY you'll hit the right version of the file tha twill download....it doesn't take that long...but it is a little annoying..
