    Default tea-timer -> chrome?

    Just a quick question... does tea-timer provide protection while surfing on Google Chrome or just IE? Do I have to make some settings changes to do this?

    Thank you.

    TeaTimer does not protect internet web browsers, rather the system itself against malicious changes and intrusion. There is no protection module for Google Chrome available yet, but the SDHelper in Spybot should be an add-on to Internet Explorer. If you have Internet Explorer 8, with the Smartscreen Filter, it is adequate protection and SDHelper would be optional.

    Spybot-S&D contains the Resident TeaTimer which is completely browser independent.
    It is a Spybot-S&D tool perpetually monitoring the processes called/initiated. It immediately detects known malicious processes wanting to start and terminates them giving you some options, how to deal with this process in the future: You can set TeaTimer to:

    - be informed, when the process tries to start again
    - automatically kill the process
    - or generally allow the process to run

    There is also an option to delete the file associated with this process.

    In addition, TeaTimer detects, when something wants to change some critical registry values. TeaTimer can protect you against such changes again giving you an option: You can either "Allow" or "Deny" the change.

    The TeaTimer is always running in the background.

    Best regards
    Team Spybot
