I'm a first time poster to this forum. Don't know the etiquette, your history, etc. I don't know what the prevailing human opinion is of Registry Cleaners but Spybot (TeaTimer I gather from reading the TT FAQ) doesn't like it and disabled it twice. Is there a way to configure Spybot/TT to ignore the Registry Cleaner executable? From what I read TT runs continuously in the background and unfortunately the Registry Cleaner was configured at installation to run at system startup. So once the RC starts, TT zaps it. Is uninstalling Spybot the only way to disable TT? Also while you're all here, do I really NEED a registry cleaner?
