whats a " thrupenny bits "
click on start ...run...type in ..msconfig...startup tab...uncheck anything related to PC Pitstop..
FYI..you can also uncheck everything EXCEPT your anti virus and firewall...unless its a laptop...then you have to be careful or your touchpad and wireless will not work..

Repeat msconfig, only this time, click on the Services tab. Check the box at the bottom that says Hide all Microsoft processes, then click on Disable All, see if that gets rid of it.

If so, go back and turn on the services a few at a time (unless it's obvious which one is the problem) until you find the culprit.

During the installation and uninstallations of programs Spybot's Tea Timer requests permission to allow every registry change. It looks as if one request went into the blacklist intentionally or by mistake. I suggest that you open TeaTimer and delete the entry from the black list.

It should be there because you enabled it when you installed Spybot. What I suggest is that you right-click the Tea Timer icon in the task bar, look for the list of blocked items and delete "PC pitstop optimize2 reminder" entry.

A quote from Spybot Help:

How do I edit the Black & White list in resident TeaTimer? FAQ #005
Please right-click the Resident icon in the system tray Spybot S&D resident and select Settings. There you will find four lists for remembered decisions (allowed/denied processes and registry changes). In order to remove an entry, just click on the cross next to it. TeaTimer will then "forget" this decision and you will be asked again the next time.
