'Access violation'

I just ran Spybot on a machine that was given to me running Win 2000. It said it couldn't fix everything, so would run on reboot. The next time "Access violation at address 004BA705 in module 'Tea Times.exe' Read of address 00000010" and other such notices. I couldn't get rid of them. When I clicked on a blank button that usually say "OK", the screen just went green. Any clues what any of this means?

It's a real time protection component that can block/allow registry changes. It's sadly fallen out of favor for this and other issues. Dump it for now.

-> Let me share I run MALWAREBYTES (see google) scanner on Windows 2000 and it did fine.
