    BB, Spysweeper and Lavasoft Ad-aware run and update properly, but spybot reports a bad checksum and will not update. Any thoughts? DRB

    Actually, I was just "testing the water" to get a flavor of the "Really Big Boys" on the site. What kind of response I would get- eg condescending, tolerant, irritated, friendly, etc.) How did you do?

    Spybot S&D regularly suffers from not updating and appears to be due to bandwidth problems - usually choosing another server for the update or simply waiting for half an hour will cure it.
    I'm using Windows 7 - you got a problem with that?

    I've also found it easier at times just to download their updates directly from the website rather than using the update feature.

    Got this for awhile. CHANGE the site you are getting your download from. That will fix the problem 99.9% of the time.

    Great suggestion. I never even contemplated that.
