windows 2000 patform using IDS

The following is what i get when i run the check feature.  Where/what files,what to delete to take care of this issue.

What is actually going on? When a rule is down loaded, lets say sid 4140, if there is another rule by that sid, does ids then keep the rule but change its sid to 1000001?

Once i fix these issues, what is the best method to keep this from happenning again?

thanks for input
