I suggest stopping Tea Timer.

I have used Spybot for eons, but I never run Tea Timer (I did once as a trial and believe that it slowed the system). IMO, Tea Timer does not do anything that is truly essential and is considered a memory hog by some.

1GB of RAM is OK, 2GB of RAM would be better.

Better than Task Manager for checking out running processes
Process Explorer:

Teatime basically protects sytem settings that may be changed by Infections.
Its also highly possible most programs will have a teatimer alert pop up because they change some part of the system.

if you want to know if it will reduce your security, then yes it will... but it will also be a system hog; i wont affect your security much and i would be more than happy to help you make up for it if you wish.
Please PM me if i have been assisting you and do not reply for 24 hours!
