I'm trying to install S & D v1.6.0 on a machine running Vista Home Premium edition.
This particular machine has User Account Control running, and no matter what I try, I can't get TeaTimer to run without manually allowing it at each re-boot (on each account).
I've tried it with Windows Defender turned off (Vista still blocks the program during account startup), and by messing about with Admin rights for all users etc. There doesn't appear to be any way of preventing TeaTimer from being blocked by Vista when UAC is enabled.
I've installed the Certificate that is provided with the install file, so it should be recognised as a valid program by Vista, but still, Vista blocks the program from running.
If I manually allow the program to run, everything's completely normal and working well.
I've trawled the posts in this forum, and this problem doesn't seem to have come up before (which I find hard to believe).
I did find a workaround on the net at this url:
but I would have thought a well established (and respected) application like Spybot Search & Destroy would have been recognised by Vista as a genuine program.
Anyone ever come across this before ?
