    Default Garbaged Registry Mod Intercept

    Shortly after installing 1.4, I was installing another package when I came to a registry modification, which was intercepted by TeaTimer per usual - except that the display was garbaged up and almost unreadable. I clicked more or less at random on the dialog box and apparently hit the "deny" button which then resulted in an abort of the installation. So sad.

    Anyway, any suggestions on the display problem? This is an IBM ThinkPad R31, but the drivers are patched up to level. Every other windows displays just fine.

    How can I turn TeaTimer off? (Short of uninstall and re-install)?

    Thank you,

    Don Estes

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

    As you are aware 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" and "Deny change" buttons 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 still want to use TeaTimer and can't deal with the problem that way until it is fixed, you can:
