Set of malware repeats.
I have downloaded SpyBot and run it. It came up with many issues which I fixed and all went green except 1 (Babylon) so I deleted the C:/Program Data/ Babylon folder. I saved the log. I repeated the scan and many more results appeared. I ran it again with the same result.
Am I doing it wrong as I would expect a subsequent run to be clean?
Two scan logs attached.
The reason why I am running it is because when I go to my email (BT.Yahoo) to login I get sent back to the log in page (but I am logged in!) or if I then navigate to my email home page I get to a fast repeat page at http://us.lrd.yahoo.com/..... which I have to close. I assume I have some sort of malware in IE9. But if I go to my admin account on my laptop I cannot type into the search bar (it does not respond) so again I assume something has corrupted my machine. I did have some malware which was cleared by MSE (which if I run comes up clean) and is not even picking up the same things as SpyBot.
Sorry its a bit involved but advice appreciated.

Is that a joke? That URL goes to a site that has been blocked by SpyBot!
Perhaps you meant another site? Anyway, no, I haven't done anything except run CC cleaner. Further input appreciated.
As far as I could see those are all tracking detections, which are entirely optional, depending on how far you want to cover your tracks. Quite a few of them such as
Internet Explorer: [SBI $0BC7B918] User agent (Registry Change, nothing done) HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\User Agent
(which essentially gives web pages information on browser version and some settings: the fix removes the user agent data)
will come up on each scan since you did not fix them ('registry change, nothing done')

OK, I've gone to regclean.com.
Rosenfeld, "will come up on each scan since you did not fix them" 'registry change, nothing done', on the Fix issue I clicked "Fix found". Looking in the Help there is no advice on what this does but I assume that's what I have to do to clear them from being detected again.
Can't put image in as nowhere to store it online.
