A few months ago I updated SpyBot S&D and must have inadvertently chosen to install Teatimer (didn't have it previously). My system (XP Home) has been running slower (at times) since. Is it all that useful ?? (If not, can it be removed easily?)

I periodically (usually weekly) scan my PC for spyware (with SpyBot and Ad-Aware) and for viruses (with Avg 8).

TeaTimer = pointless gimmick. In my opinion.
Right click on it in the taskbar and click on the appropriate option to tell it to go forth and multiply. In Spybot there should be an option to set TeaTimer not to say hey anymore.

I would disagree with you

TeaTimer has proven to be very good at stopping malware from getting on users PCs. If you want to be sure your PC stays clean, keep using it

Previous experience of TeaTimer suggests that all it does is tell you that something's changed and do you want to allow it. Since a lot of users click yes on every box that comes up without reading it would suggest that there's a major flaw in the logic behind this program. In my opinion anyway.
