    Default Teatimer Dialogue Box Problem

    I have a problem with Teatimer's warning Dialogue box - I can never read it due to some GUI error (which I only have with this dialogue box and nothing else).

    See the attached file (popped up after a Windows Update).

    Not too fussed about fixing the GUI problem, however I would like to know which button is "allow" and which is "deny" for reference?

    There is currently a bug in TeaTimer 1.4. Portions of TeaTimer's popup dialog overlay the "Allow change" and "Deny change" buttons. On my system the very top edges of the "Allow change" button (on the left) and "Deny change" button (on the right) are showing and I am still able to select the options. I also can check "Remember this decision" since it is visible. If no portion of the "Allow change" and "Deny change" buttons are showing, you can answer TeaTimer's popup dialog (English language version) by pressing "A" on your keyboard for "Allow change" or "D" for "Deny change". Note: If you close the dialog without answering "Allow change" or "Deny change" the registry change is denied.

    If you can't deal with the problem that way until it is fixed, you can:
    1. Apply one of the workarounds found in the following pinned (Sticky) thread that fixes the pop-up dialog so the buttons are visible:

      There are three (3) fixes published in that thread. They are:

      1. The ResHacker fix published by ElPiedra here:
      2. The murdo patch published here:

        Also republished by RuggeR29 (which I have never tried) here:
      3. The patch originally by SyreneD that I published here:

        Also republished by SyreneD himself here:

    2. Disable TeaTimer as follows:
      • Go into Spybot > Mode > Advanced Mode > Tools > Resident.
      • Uncheck the following:
        • Resident "TeaTimer" (Protection of over-all system settings) Active.

    3. There is also a beta test version of TeaTimer available that overcomes this problem. To download the ßTeaTimer 1.5:
      • Go into Spybot > Mode > Advanced mode > Settings > Settings.
      • Page down the option tree until you see a section titled "Web update" (just past half way down).
      • In the "Web update" section check the following option:
        • Display available beta versions.
      • Click Spybot-S&D (left pane).
      • Click Search for Updates (right pane).
      • When the list of available updates appears, check the following item:
        • ßTeaTimer 1.5 - !Resident protection update (1 MB) - 2007-02-14
      • Click Download Updates.


    Notes about the patches (b. and c. above):

    Getting an answer is one thing, learning is another.

    I'm in no hurry for a fix - the "A" and "D" solution is just fine

    Not quite sure how I managed to miss the "Sticky"
