Issue: How to fix Tea timer.exe error
Recently, my computer has become really slow. I’m trying to investigate what might cause the problem. I’m going through the list of processes on my Task Manager and there is a process called Teatimer.exe which I don’t seem to have seen there before. Can anyone explain to me what is it? Is it harmful and should I remove it?
Teatimer.exe is not a harmful process. However, there are several things that you should know about it before making your decision whether to keep it on your computer or remove it once and for all. This file has been probably installed on your computer with Search and Destroy from Spybot as it is this anti-spyware’s sub file. It monitors your computer and helps detecting dangerous files on your OS.
However, it is a very important thing to remember that certain instances of malware like to disguise themselves as legitimate processes. Therefore, be careful if you see this process on your Task Manager. Check if it is not misspelled or where it is located. If you are dealing with a genuine file, you should typically it find somewhere in C:\Program Files\Spybot – Search & Destroy. If you find it in C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System32 beware, because you might be dealing with some harmful applications on your computer.
For the record, Teatimer.exe is neither an adware nor a virus. However, it might offer to perform changes in one’s registry and such changes always involve certain risk, when they are performed by an inexperienced user. Therefore, you should assess your competence before adjusting anything on your register.
While this application is not harmful, it has been reported to eat up a lot of processing capacity. If you do not need Spybot any longer, you should make sure that teatimer.exe is removed together with it. This will save you some space on your disk and increase the processing performance. Therefore, if you have made up your mind to remove the program, there are two ways for you to do it and we will review both of them.
