When trying to update Spybot on my son's computer, the updates always come back with a checksum error. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Spybot but that didn't work. Any ideas what could be causing this?

Check the download location you are trying. (It's located at the top of the update window in Spybot.) The default location is often busy. There is a USA option if you are here in The States.
