Spybot: Registry change denied (Category Browser page) based on your black list

I have started getting these endless popups: Registry change denied. Resident denied the change of Start Page (Category Browser page) based on your black list.

In Spybot forums, it said to remove the item from further detection. I did that after a Spy Bot scan. But these windows still pop up.

Anyone know what's going on? I've seen some items online having to do with TeaTimer but it was beyond me.

Sometimes SpyBot is not successful with some spyware.

Download the trial version of ewido and do a scan with that: http://www.ewido.net/en/
(do an update first when you run it the first time, then a "quick scan")

I used Spybot's Tea timer, it monitors all registry changes so it always asks you when it notices that a registry entry is about to be changed. This is good when a malware/viruses is the one trying to change your reg entry then you just deny it.

Tea timer sometimes interferes hiijackthis fixing bad entries, so it needs to be turn off if or when you're removing a malware registry entries. Apart from that it's good.

But the problem is - SpyBot shows no problems, but I have nonstop Registry change denied. I did a system restore to several days ago, to no avail.

It seems like I want to know who or waht is trying to change the Start Page. Isn't shutting off Tea Timer dangerous without knowing what's going on - because it will let the registry change through?
