Good day.

I know that this question is already for so many times. sorry. I just want to ask for help in disabling tea timer.
I tried to search but i always got an error on searching. Maybe someone could give me a link in some previous post that it was tackled.

Thanks

Open Spybot
Then mode>advanced mode>tools>resident and take the check mark out of the teatimer box.

I used tea timer for about 2 years, it ended up causing me more problems that it saved. Be sure teatimer is off before trying to tell spybot or windows to not load it at bootup.

It's a very powerful tool and protection. But very dangerous.

Kind of like locking up the registry and losing the key.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

@alumbagh and @ Dachew

I see. I will just try to uninstall it and install it again. Without checking the tea timer at installlation. Would it be a good solution?
I hope moderators can have tutorial of unstalling it. I tried to look in SD website and found that some registry item should be deleted. Which I am quite hesitant to do since I am not familiar to it.

It seems it is slowing down my computer having two resident scanner. I have a kaspersky and tea timer.

Anyways, thanks for the suggestion . It really help a lot.

Domou arigatou gozaimasu.

Thanks

Best regards.

Mark

I uninstalled 1.4, rebooted and installed 1.5 some time later

I really like scanning and sd protection and immunization with spybot. TeaTimer was fine when I remembered to turn it off before installing programs or making system changes, it was a disaster if I forgot.

Disable Teatimer
First step:
  • Right-click the Spybot Icon in the System Tray (looks like a blue/white calendar with a padlock symbol)
  • If you have the new version 1.5, Click once on Resident Protection, then Right click the Spybot icon again and make sure Resident Protection is now Unchecked. The Spybot icon in the System tray should now be now colorless.
  • If you have Version 1.4, Click on Exit Spybot S&D Resident
Second step, For Either Version :
  • Open Spybot S&D
  • Click Mode, choose Advanced Mode
  • Go To the bottom of the Vertical Panel on the Left, Click Tools
  • then, also in left panel, click Resident shows a red/white shield.
  • If your firewall raises a question, say OK
  • In the Resident protection status frame, Uncheck the box labeled Resident "Tea-Timer"(Protection of over-all system settings) active
  • OK any prompts.
  • Use File, Exit to terminate Spybot
  • Reboot your machine for the changes to take effect.

Thanks Katana.

I already disabled the tea timer.

Also for the information of BC school. I thought it was something like a school where there will
be teacher to teach you such as HJT log analysis and other stuff. Im a noob on computer. Doesnt fit.

Anyways, thanks.

If you join the school, there are practice logs and teachers to guide you through the process.
All it takes is a willingness to learn (and time :thumbsup: )
