    I use Vista HP and have just completed my first full scan using Malwarebytes and Windows Defender has asked me if I wish to Allow a Swiss Army driver from Malwarebytes. Is this an OK driver ... has a very strange name?

    That's the MalwareBytes driver name. Perhaps they should have called it MalwareBytesDriver.sys. But they didn't.
    Why is the resident scanner module of Spybot - Search and Destroy called TeaTimer?
    Both products of designer whimsy...

    Thanks for advice ... maybe they should have called it Swiss Army Knife for it cuts out what you don't want!
