    Unhappy How do I disable Teatimer?

    This may sound like an odd request, and I admit it is, but as it is, my computer is a 2002 model and Teatimer eats up CPU usage like you wouldn't believe. I just recently downloaded the new version of Spybot at the suggestion of a friend, and did not run Teatimer at the installation because I didn't know what the devil it was. My computer ran fine. However since it's so old, Teatimer really messes with the machine's use. is there a way to disable Teatimer so that it doesn't run on startup...or at all for that matter, and just use Spybot itself on demand?

    Hello Warwolf,

    1. Open Spybot-S&D in Advanced Mode.
    2. If it is not already set to do this go to the "Mode" menu and select "Advanced Mode".
    3. On the left hand side, click on "Tools".
    4. Then click on the Resident Icon in the List.
    5. Uncheck "Resident TeaTimer" and OK any prompts.
    6. Restart your computer.

    Hope that helps.
