HELP with Spybot Update

I have had Spybot S&D for a few months now. Today I checked for Updates, as I do whenever I scan. An update was available. After downloading I saw the following .. for the first time, since I have been using Spybot.

Under "Update" there is a red circle that has an exclamation point inside it.. that is crossed out. (As in "NO... crossing, smokings,etc.) Under "Info" it say, "!!!bad checksum!". Could someone please tell me what this means and where I might be able to check these things out for myself, so I don't have to come here everytime I see something unfamiliar.

I tried to find out what the update was from net- integration website, but was unable to find it. Obviously, I am new to all this, as some may know.. Roddy. I have not had a problem understanding updates, until today. (The scan feature indicated I needed it.. let me download it.. and that was all I was able to do. I even rebooted to see if that would make a difference. Negative.)

Thanks in advance..

Marianna..

I have to laugh, because I tired various links, just prior to the one in the article that Tom posted.

This also gives me the opportunity, to thank YOU.. for all the information you have supplied me with in the past.

So thanks are in order to you too..

Sorry....Omitted

Underneath the Updates Title, next to the circled red exclamation point, that indicates "No" or "Forbidden".. it says 'Detection rules'. Left that out in above post.

Thanks for your patience!
