Hello jostjansel.

I understand you say the problem occurred after installing Spybot-S&D but I do not know why.

It might be worth a shot posting at a ZA forum unless you receive an answer here shortly.

What messages did you receive and how did you answer them?

If they were TeaTimer message they can be found in the log displayed when you go into Spybot > Mode > Advanced mode > Tools > Resident or if you still have Spybot uninstalled, look in the following file:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Logs\Resident.log
