Spybot's TeaTimer is not a firewall.
Tea Timer is a system change monitor that scans for every change to the registry. It's designed to alert you when spyware, or any other program, attempts to make a change to the VERY fragile, and important, System Registry.
It then asks you whether to allow, or block, the change.
If you're not installing a program, which will usually make registry changes, and just browsing, I would block anything TeaTimer warns you of, as it's probably malware that the site is trying to install.
Anything that you block, can be unblocked if you later find out that you need it for the site to function properly.
To get TeaTimer to forget what you told it to remember, via Remember this decision, you can right click on the TeaTimer system tray icon and select Settings.
This will bring up TeaTimer's "White & Black List".
There are four (4) Buttons accross the top of the "White & Black List":
* Allowed processes
* Blocked processes
* Allowed registry changes
* Blocked registry changes
If you donít see all four buttons, try expanding the window to the right.
The button you would look for in the "White & Black List" is Blocked registry changes.
You can review all the entries that you've stored.
You can also delete entries by clicking on the scripted black "X", to the right of the entry.
When your finished, click the OK button.
This will make TeaTimer "forget", what you told it to remember.
During future changes to these items, TeaTimer will issue a pop-up dialog, asking if you want to Allow, or Deny, the change.
If you would like to discuss this further Dennis H, please start your own topic.
This will help to avoid the confusion, of trying to help two or more people, in the same thread, with different problems.
Even if your problem is similar to the original poster's problem, the solution could be totally different due to different hardware, software, system requirements, etc....
