  1. Hi Eli.
    Can you help me please about Tea timer?

    Now they changes the option on Select Additional Task and I am confuse
    which one to uncheck..

    1 Schedule regular system scan
    2 schedule regular immunization refreshes
    3 schedule regular update


    1 Integrate into Explorers AutoPlay for new devices
    2 Integrate all into Explorers context menu

    This is the new Additional tasks when I install spybot.

  2. I am using windows 7 and I can only go on safe mode, safe mode with
    internet, and safe mode with command prompt.

  3. Hi Eli, great video as are they all, just a comment I use windows 8.1, and
    the F-8 for safe mode doesn’t work with that, there are several ways to get
    there, like reboot holding town the Down shift key, or trying in msconfig
    and choosing boot and rebooting and it will come back on safe mode…cheers

  4. We already know that the NSA worked closely with Microsoft and got a
    widely-used platform (internationally) with back doors it has exclusive
    access to, which basically means that Microsoft Windows is a Trojan horse
    for the NSA. Just remember where Linux is being developed. It’s the same
    country as Microsoft and Apple.

  7. No spyware and malware are always bad, you know nothing you stinking idiot
    my dad has been fixing and putting together pcs since the 1980’s and passed
    on his teaching so get a life and malwarebytes antimalware all spybot
    search and destroy does is infects your pc and then next time you scan it
    detects the threats and destroys them then one or two hours later when you
    least suspect it the program infects your pc with the same exact threats it
    removed all over again. don’t fall for this phony guy is shit he is simply
    advertising malware for money as a scam. however he is correct about pups
    and updating your antivirus. However my dad works for trend micro. Both me
    and my dad have had over 20 years experience and yes even got around nasty
    rogues and deleted them all with ccleaner and rkill and malwarebytes
    antimalware and mwcleaner. the best place to get rkill is which has been a trusted site since 2002 and still
    remains so today.
    besides in the year 2004 spybot S&D installed itself into my laptop without
    my permission.
