I am doing some cleanup work on my parents pc and have a question about TeaTimer. They installed Spybot S&D 1.3 but didn't install TeaTimer. Is there a way to install it seperate or would i have to do a complete reinstall? Thanks!

Locate & open the Spybot folder in Program Files, see if you find teatimer.exe in it.
Failure is not an option, it comes bundled with the software.

The way i enable Teatimer is, open Spybot. Goto the top left and click on the 'Mode' button. Choose 'Advanced Mode'. Next goto bottom left column click 'Tools'. Again from the left column choose 'Resident'. Make sure The box next to- Resident "TeaTimer" (Protection of over-all system settings) active, is checked. Hth

I personally have turned Teatimer off because it takes too much system resources and it becomes a hassle when installing things.

Are you sure you have the latest version of Spybot KinG? Should be v 1.3 final. I have heard the release candidates had that sort of problem with high resource usage, but the problem was fixed in the final release. My version of Spybot/Teatimer uses next to nothing as far as system resources go.

Oh, yeah sorry about that. You are right Lonewolf. I don't need it anymore because I am using Mozilla Firefox anyway.

It is now enabled, thank you! I have version 1.3 and it says there are no more updates available. I don't see anywhere that confirms that it is the final version. Is there a way to tell that I am missing?

Yes, but if you're using Windows, IE is still there, and it's an integral component of the OS... so an extra protection measure never does any harm.

I'm using Firefox too (as well as Opera), but Tea-Timer is always running (as is SpywareGuard). :)

Well I love Firefox, but just because you are using it doesn't mean you are immune to spyware/adware. Espically if you download and install a lot of software, you never know when one of them is bundled with adware.

Still I agree, there is loads to improve for tea-timer.
Please note that the software I recommend above is entirely based on only my own experience and testing.
