SpyBot W3i.IQ5.fraud & Babylon won't go away.

Running my SpyBot, I encountered 2 items that refuse to go away, due to administration problem.

I did a google search, & learned that my Babylon might b gone now that I've cleaned my Java cache, but not sure.

I looked at the SpyBot site, & it spoke about the W3i.IQ5.fraud but, I'm not understanding it.

SpyBots responce after a "RUN FIX," is "Action may not be performed since you are not an administrator. If you want it performed, please run it as application operation administrator." Word or 2 off, wouldn't let me cut & paste. "Some items couldn't be fixed, please allow SpyBot to run on next ...." I'm going to turn it off & try again.

I use TFC.exe a few times aday, then run SpyBot, or Malwarebytes, or K???. I keep it switched up, kind of like worming my horses, seems I'm always trying to eliminate different worms.

Problem 3: I think I'm running a full time protection w/microsoft 64 bit, but not 100%.

I attempt to clean, clean, clean after every few hours, on the net, especially since now I'm using a WiFi @ a small town motel.

TY again
