Hey all,

With Spybot - S & D I have a few questions. What exactly is the TeaTimer and do I need it? And does the Immunize feature essentially do what Spywareblaster does? I am running MBAM PRO and MSE so I hope there are no complications with the three programs.

Thanks in advance.

Hello :)

Teatimer is the system monitor. Its primary function is to monitor your system for changes to system startup locations (items added or removed from running at startup). It tends to be a bit resource intensive and with all the rest of your protections, it is likely unnecessary.

The Immunization feature does the same things that SpywareBlaster does to a certain extent, SpywareBlaster protects against some items that Spybot S&D does not, and likewise, Spybot S&D protects against some items that SpywareBlaster does not.

The biggest difference will be the HOSTS file, which Spybot S&D uses. They both add entries to the Restricted Zone that are known to be malicious.
