For the Spybot alerts on Windows Security Center read the discussion here and see the FAQ: Why does Spybot-S&D flag changes in the Windows Security Center?.

As the Spybot folks say

...This is neither a false positive nor a bug. It is just an information. Spybot-S&D only wants to bring to your attention that "someone" disabled one or more notifications in the Windows Security Center.

If you changed the settings yourself you can safely tell Spybot to exclude those detections from further scans...The same is true if you have another security solution installed (like McAfee Security Center or Norton Internet Security). These programs also disable the Windows Security Center in order to take care of things themselves. The reason why the changes are flagged by Spybot-S&D is that there are also malware programs that disable the notifications so the user doesn't take note of his security tools not being effective.

If you did not change the settings, then I would ask what other security programs you have installed?
