Please let us know how your machine is running at this time, and especially if you are still having the difficulty with multiple instances of IE opening.
As to your Spybot Search & Destroy results...
WildTangent is an online gaming console, that used to be riddled with spyware and now still has "some" unwanted items bundled with it, enough to make it "undesireable". Still, it has lots of fun game stuff that many users like. If it were my machine, I'd uninstall WildTangent via Add/Remove.
If you do decide to Uninstall WildTangent, it is necessary to Uninstall all the sub-games first, before Uninstalling the main WildTangent game controller/console.
Regarding the Cookies......
It's a good idea to clear out your cookies every now and then, maybe weekly, or more often if you are on the internet alot.
Control Panel - Internet Options <--- Double-Click on Internet Options to open the Interne Properties Panel
Click on both Delete Cookies and Delete Files (allow offline files to be deleted also)
Run your Spybot Search & Destroy again.
All of the Cookie items should be gone, per the Delete Cookies function you performed above.
That will leave you with only....
Microsoft.WindowsSecurityCenter.AntiVirusDisableNotify: Settings (Registry change, nothing done)
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, e.g. the notifications that your virus protection is not active or not up-to-date. If you changed the settings yourself you can safely tell Spybot-S&D to exclude those detections from further scans.
In order to do so please right-click each in turn, then click "exclude this detection from future scans". That way, should any other part of security center settings change, Spybot-S&D will still detect those.
The same is true if you have another security solution installed (like McAfee Security Center or Norton Internet Security). These programs do 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.
Some more information is also available at the following forum:
AntiVirusOverride <--- is a whole other matter and would indicate possible malware activity.

Download and install AVG Anti-Spyware, Download the updates and Scan.
P.S: Did you post a HJT Log in the Log area? More experienced people could help you out there.
What do you mean by that? Sorry if I have missed anything, I'm busy today.
do you think it was just a coincidence or maybe something hostile could be getting downloaded during these updates.
