    Default How do you reset TeaTimer?

    I've been having ongoing problems with the winlogon and www.coolsearch bugs. I've been able to clear them out, but then two or three days later, they appear again.

    I think that with the display problem in the dialog box, there's a chance that I or my wife might have answered yes for a change that we really should have answered No.

    How can I reset TeaTimer and start from scratch with regard to telling what to block and/or allow?

    Firstly, you can also fix the popup dialog by applying one of the workarounds found in the following pinned (Sticky) thread:

    To reset TeaTimer so that it does not remember any previous entries:

    1. Edit the entries that TeaTimer uses to automatically "Allow" or "Deny" changes that were based on the use of "Remember this decision" as follows:

      • Right click on the TeaTimer system tray icon and select Settings. This will bring up TeaTimer's "White & Black List". There are four (4) Buttons across the top of the "White & Black List":
        • Allowed processes
        • Blocked processes
        • Allowed registry changes
        • Blocked registry changes

          Note: If you don't see all four buttons, try expanding the window to the right.

      • The entries that you should review are in "Allowed registry changes" and "Blocked registry changes". You can delete entries by clicking on the scripted black "X" to the right of the entry that you want to delete and then clicking the "OK" button when you're done. This will in effect make TeaTimer forget what you told it to remember so that during future changes to these items TeaTimer will issue a pop-up dialog rather then just a notification pop-up.

    2. Reset TeaTimers snapshot files:

      • TeaTimer takes snapshots of Registry entries and compares these with the Registry at startup. Until these snapshots are updated you are likely to get pop-ups (at startup) of changes you made in the past. In other words, TeaTimer attempts to return the Registry to the state it was in when the snapshot was taken. This happens primarily when you reboot the system. To refresh TeaTimer's snapshot files:
        • Right click Spybot's TeaTimer System Tray Icon > click Exit Spybot-S&D Resident.
          • TeaTimer closes.
          • TeaTimer's snapshot files are refreshed at this time.
        • Restart TeaTimer:
          • Using Windows Explorer, navigate to C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy.
          • Double click TeaTimer.exe to start it.

    Getting an answer is one thing, learning is another.
