I just ran the Spybot scan and the result was '131 problems found'. All of them in red. What does this mean?

this means your computer was full of spyware/malware and it should be removed/deleted.

A word of caution. You have to make sure that any of the entries that have been identified have to be removed via Add/Remove before you let SpyBot or any other malware scanner to do a repair. If you don't you will later that you may not be able to remove certain programs or they will keep coming back.
