    Default Hundreds of spybot message polyps after scan

    I just ran spybot for the first time last night. Afterwards, two kinds of messages kept popping up that I would have to respond to. I still am.

    One is a spybot window that requests a category change. I vlicked remember this decision for first could dozen but realized it was costing not saving effort as I kept Terri g the message. He other type of message is from windows asking if I want to allow spybot to make changes to this computer
    Is here any way I can change settings to allow it to make changes so I sony get all these messages?

    Please read this information about TeaTimer.
    If you surf the web and without any user interaction the TeaTimer pops up and warns about a registry change it is better to "deny", but if you install something by yourself it is OK to "allow" the change.
    The tutorial (point 8) on our homepage should also help explaining.

    If you have scanned and fixed items with Spybot you have to allow the registry change that the Resident TeaTimer is asking for.
    Only then the items will be deleted completely.

    If you do not like the resident TeaTimer you can disable it as follows:
    - Go into Spybot - Mode - Advanced Mode - Tools - Resident.
    - Uncheck the following: Resident "TeaTimer" (Protection of over-all system settings) Active.

    Best regards
    Team Spybot
