    DKLM
    DKSV
    Download Accelerator Plus
    FREE Equation Illustrator Editor version 1.7.3.0 (I know what it is & have used, but not sure if its any good, or if there are safer & better apps that do the same thing)
    General 4.5b
    GPSoftware Directory Opus
    Graph
    iPodder 2.0.5 (dont have an ipod)
    MSN Music Assistant
    MSXML4 Parser
    MUSICMATCH Jukebox
    Shockwave

    Ad-Aware 6 is an old version, It is ad-Aware SE (second edition)

    As for the other programs you mention its up to you . im not familur with those, basicly uninstall what you dont use, not including updates and windows tools such as MSXML4 Parser.

    The item's you mention in the SpyBot results are mostly just cookies, fix them.
    Why does Spybot-S&D flag changes in the Windows Security Center?

    Be more specific about the error please,. details are important.

    You should read more about what Tea Timer is and does before using it
    basicly click allow for known good items and not for others, do not use the remember desicion box.

    When did I use it? As a basic user, isnt it auto set up by spybot?
    Thanks for your assistance

    Curious why you would want to restore what spybot has removed ?

    Im unsure of why the errors, let us know if you see them again

    I suggest you turn tea timer back OFF and leave it off untill you read more about it, It is not enabled by default when we install SpyBot.
