I have run spybot and it won't let me delete. It says I'm not the administrator, but I am. Here is what my spybot finds:

FunWeb 1 entries Spyware

FunWebProducts 1 entries PUP

MyWay.MyWebSearch 3 entries PUP

MyWebSearch 2 entries Trojans

I've talked to Spybot, but they aren't much help. My computer will sometimes run slow, I now have a pop up window that comes up. How do I remove these things when spybot won't acknowledge me as the administrator? (again ~ I have it set to administrator but it still won't let me delete)

Use Super Antispyware to find and remove the malware.
Be sure to update SAS in regular mode before rebooting into Safe Mode to run the scan.
