    If you are running Vista, you need to close Spybot and then start it again by going to start>all programs>spybot >spybot search & destroy

    right click and "run as administrator"

    scan again and you should have no problem removing checked items.

    I'd try restarting in safe mode (hit f8 as your computer starts up) and then running spybot. Sometimes these bugs'll make it so you get weird errors...
