  1. Somehow teatimer got turned on, and I'm trying to do the security check as outlined at this site, so now that it's on, how do I turn it off?

    Disable Spybot's TeaTimer. This is a two step process.
    First:
    - Right click Spybot in the System Tray (looks like a calendar with a padlock symbol)
    - Choose Exit Spybot S&D Resident
    Second:
    - Open Spybot S&D
    - Click Mode, check Advanced Mode
    - Go To Left Panel, Click Tools, then also in left panel, click Resident
    - If your firewall raises a question, say OK
    - Uncheck the box labeled Resident Tea-Timer and OK any prompts.
    - Use File, Exit to terminate Spybot
    - Reboot your machine for the changes to take effect.

    Regards Howard :)
