    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?

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