it seems that alot of people are having trouble updating their firefox and thunderbird applications while teatimer is running. Is there a fix on the way for this problem? it seems that only the latest updates from mozilla are having the problem. Once teatimer is disabled, the updates go smoothly.
Perhaps you have clicked the notification from the Resident TeaTimer away instead of allowing it, because you can't read the buttons clearfully.
This is a little bug in version 1.4: http://www.safer-networking.org/en/news/2005-06-22.html
We have already been able to locate and fix it. The fix will be downloadable with our next program upgrade. We hope that it will be available soon. As a current solution you can work with your keyboard. Use the cursor keys to switch between the buttons ("Allow" is on the left, "Deny" on the right) and the space key to enter your selection. You can also press "A" on your keyboard for "Allow change" or "D" for "Deny change". The Checkbox for "Remember this decision" will work correctly in spite of the graphical issue.
If you don't like to use the above workarounds you can disable TeaTimer as follows: - Go into Spybot - Mode - Advanced Mode - Tools - Resident.
- Uncheck the following: Resident "TeaTimer" (Protection of over-all system settings) Active.
