    Hello. Does anyone know what Teatimer is in the new Spybot 1.3(and what it does)? Couldn't find any info on it in the help menu. Thanks a million.

    Hi Rocker, :)

    Net Intergration is the offical support forum for Spybot ... I did a search for you and found this link for Tea Timer

    But we love to discuss it here too! :D

    HTH

    Thanx dog for the link,

    I have still open questions:
    What I need is not examples of what TeaTimer does, but a complete list of its features! Which registry locations are monitored for example? Why can't the author just put this in the helpfile. Ahh.

    Also I cannot find any usable information on what exactly SDHelper does (appart from the empty phrase "block bad downloads"), even though I searched the forums. Could someone be so kind and share a link or info regarding this?

    thanx in adv.

    Patrick has spent the last 5 weeks nearly nite and day debugging the app for the 1.3 final release yesterday. I'm sure the help files will be updated as quickly as possible. :D

    I really appreciate the efforts of Patrick.

    Still can somebody please point me to a topic or page enumerating the features of Teatimer, and/or defining the "bad downloads" which are blocked by SDHelper?

    Anyone have any idea's?

    Problem: My homepage has been hijacked. Keeps coming up as
    your-search.com. I have ran spybot and adaware 6.0 and it continue's to be a pest. I change the home page and after some time it changes it back. I have gone into the registry and modified the entries to my home page yahoo and it changes that to. I have also tried the tea timer and it seems to get past it. I have tried setting my home page to yahoo then using the lock ie feature in spybot. When I go into the advanced mode and click on browser pages I modify those to yahoo and it even overrights that. Any help would be greatly appreciated. A program must be living somewhere that continuously copys the your-search entries into my registry. I don't know what else to try..?
