This is my first time to post anywhere, am not sure if this subject is already here somewhere...if so, my apologies!

I have Spybot 1.4, which I have no trouble with, except when the Browser Helper Object page comes up, the boxes at the bottom where you accept or deny aren't there. There are some lines, but no words and no way to get the thing to GO AWAY! I'm going to download the newer 1.5.2 and hope that takes care of it. Any words of wisdom from the nether regions of the universe??

Hello lamchop22 and welcome to BC :flowers:

except when the Browser Helper Object page comes up, the boxes at the bottom where you accept or deny aren't there.

Can you describe this page that comes up a bit more? My suspicion is that what you are seeing is the Tea-Timer pop-up, which is not a Browser Helper Object page at all. That page you can see only in the general user interface screen in the tools section.

I too would suspect you have the Tea timer enabled ; I for one would councel agaisnt upgrading to the 1.5 version for the time being ;which windows version are you running?

this link goes to the spybot 1.4 version


and the exe is http://filehippo.com/download/433df542b93f...244ac/download/ which you may wish to save somewhere safe; you MAY opt to uninstall spybot, and start again with the 1.4 version omitting the Tea timer option :thumbsup:

This is a known problem with Spybot 1.4.
You can find more information about this, here:
Spybot/Alert Dialog, Not complete

Scarlett posted a link to a couple of temporary fixes:
TeaTimer fixes
I've used the ResHacker fix, and it worked for me.
Used it shortly after it was posted, and haven't experienced any ill effects, yet.
All it does, is resize the TeaTimer dialog box (increases height), so all the entries are visible.
It changes the default height from 160 pixels, to 190 pixels.
