Windows 7: TeaTimer.exe

TeaTimer.exe

i have Spybot S&D on my laptop, and included Tea Timer in the installation. I just saw at this current moment that its taking 124,932 K and my memory is at 1.2 GB out of 2GB without even doing anything when its usually a lot lower. This occured after I logged off my account but there were errors that came up when initially trying so I forced the log off, could this be the reason? Also...

1. Do I need Tea Timer, is it recommended?
2. it says I have 166542 processes blacklisted out of 283740, im guessing thats not good

and a side note, I keep finding the "Open New Side Note" icon in my hidden icons tray, and I have never used it, does anyone know why this could be?

Steveseven,

This is just my own personal recommendation. I use Spybot but I didn't configure it with Immunization or Tea Timer mainly because I have had problems with Tea Timer and other running malware applications in the past. At the moment it seems that Microsoft Security Essentials is adequate as a security option.

I also use Malwarbytes at least every other day, but have no other apps running constantly other than MSE.

I seem to have better luck by just running Spybot as I do Malwarebytes and that is every other day or so.

are there any benefits to Tea Timer that you dont get with anti-virus, anti-malware, etc?

Personally, I think Spybot is a crap.

What do you use except spybot for your security?

In my opinion if you are confident, you may give up on spybot...
