My Spybot Search & Destroy will display a warning when I install some program.

However, I can't read what is written at the 2 buttons at the warning window.
But I figure it must be 'Allow' on the left, and 'Disallow' on the right.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling my SpybotSD, but the waring display still not fully readable at the bottom.
*1) How can I fix it?
*2) How can I know what is safe to 'allow' and what to 'disallow' during some installations?
(I usually click 'allow' to the changes made.)


Normally I will get a registry value added / changed warning after some installation of programs such as SUPERA Antispy. Btw, anyone heard of this program? It claims to detect what other spyware prog cant detect.

I appreciate for any feedbacks, thanks in advance;

This is a known issue with Spybot. Here is what it should look like :

It's a highly recommended program & does it's job very effectively! Looking at your list of programs you have listed Here , you are pretty well covered.

It claims to detect what other spyware prog cant detect


When using Spyware Programs, it is recommended that you use several programs to help protect your computer. What one catches, the other might miss. Because of the nature of Anti Virus Programs & Firewalls, you only need one of each. Having more than one actually does more harm than good. That, however is not the case with Spyware Programs.

There is a temporary fix for this problem at the new Spybot S&D Forums:
Solution To Fix The Pop Ups In Tea Timer.

I haven't used this fix...I press the keyboard A for allow and D for deny.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

I've used the ResHacker fix, and it worked for me.
Used it shortly after it was posted, and haven't experienced any ill affects, 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.

I've used the ResHacker and fix Tea Timer. But My Taskbar looks abnormal with the 'show/ hide' inactive icon missing. I have this problem before when I first install SpyBot SD, but I then got my Taskbar fixed by uninstalling & reinstalling SpyBot. Now that I've done the fixing with ResHacker, my Taskbar gives problem...


Pls advice

Glad it cleared itself up Verons88, because I couldn't find anything on the problem.
After you did the ResHacker fix, did you reboot the computer?
