The bad checksum error you are getting when downloading Spybot definition updates is most likely caused by an overloaded server. Try getting the update from one of the other servers, or wait till the original server is less busy.

Because each company has different criteria for spyware/adware, etc., one application will find something another doesn't; that is why having several good anti-spyware applications makes sense. If Ad-Aware finds it, then let it quarantine it for you.

Adaware finds it and I delete it but when I run the scan again it shows back up. I want this NEWDOTNET crap gone.
