Spybot S&D

Just thought I would mention that when I checked for updates tonight Spybot S&D gave me the opportunity to download latest version 1.5

Updated without problem. Although I now have an icon in my tray which I didnt have before.

Dont know if its my imagination but web pages appear to be loading an awful lot quicker than before update.

Wondered if anyone else noticed a speed up.

You are now using the 'Resident Tea Timer'. This will monitor all registry changes and will produce a pop-up when changes are due and will ask for permission.

Not sure about Barmoors' question, but rdave13's answer is interesting. The pop-up regarding register changes has recently started occurring on my pc, always to do with DefaultUserName. It can be from/to any of us. I always deny the change. Is this correct? Its an extremely irritating pop-up!

I just got the pop up and I denied changed

Whats this all about. Am ready to uninstall Spybot S&D.

Is this new version too complicated? I just want simplicity.

That's TeaTimer for you.

If you have just made an alteration to a piece of Software that you wish to keep up to date ~ Then accept the alteration.

If the alteration refers to an unknown piece of Software. Don't allow it and investigate the Software

To disable Tea Timer, open Spybot and click on mode to show Advanced mode unless already ticked. Bottom left click on tools-- resident icon--and untick the Tea Timer box.Click on mode again and select default mode.
