Spybot Search & Destroy has just found two spyware. They are;

MoeMoney

NavExcel

They have both asked to access the internet (so I blocked them) but when I try and remove them with Spybot, it says that they coulndn't be fixed because they could be that the associated files are still in use(in memory) This could be fixed after a restart.

What should I do to get rid of them.

Let Spybot scan upon restarting - it will load before everything else and do the scan on it's own if you select OK.

Navexcel Go to Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel, choose the 'NavHelper' and click 'Remove'. Restart the computer

just to be safe i suggest scanning with Ad aware SE form lava soft because spy bot doesn't find as many as lavasoft's does! see link click here

You did not mention the OS that you are using but if it includes Sysytem Restore then, now that you are clean, it is essential that you clean up the system restore element to ensure that you do not accidentally put the malware back in the future.

This is easily achieved by switching off system restore, then restart the computer and restart system restore. The restart will automatically put a clean restore point in the system
