    Unhappy unreadable allow/deny popup windows

    1) I can't read the pop-up window that I'm supposed to respond to regarding allowing or denying a process. The bottom half of the window is vertically condensed.
    2) Then, this caused me to mistakenly deny a process that I haven't been able to find out how to ALLOW now (I looked in your help file & FAQ's)

    What can I do? Thank you.

    Question Just saw the "sticky" to fix bug in pop-ups, but still...

    But I still need to ALLOW a process that I had prev denied by mistake. How to do this?

    This is a little bug in version 1.4:
    We have already been able to locate and fix it. The fix will be downloadable with our next program upgrade. We hope that it will be available soon.
    As a current solution you can work with your keyboard. Use the cursor keys to switch between the buttons ("Allow" is on the left, "Deny" on the right) and the space key to enter your selection. You can also press "A" on your keyboard for "Allow change" or "D" for "Deny change". The Checkbox for "Remember this decision" will work correctly in spite of the graphical issue. If you don't like to use the above workarounds 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.
    For more information please have a look here:
    And you'll find a little workaround here:

    Best regards
