Hello,
it's really annoying. Every time when i come close to a folder etc. with the coursor or click on something, a installer appears to install a package for Adobe Reader 7.msi. If I'm not fast enough to cancel, he asked me in a new window to tell it the installation path. I guess, it's a trojanian. I think I got it this morning, I wanted to translate some scripts from Spain to English but I forget the website of babelfish. so I tried www.babelfish.com. A directory turned up and that's how it started.
I don't see anything on my Hijack This. I also used Adaware, Spybot, Trojanian Hunter, AVG Virus System Check and Spyware Doctor. Nothing came up.

Here's my Log File:

the pop up is not the originally installer. It only uses the name Adobe. I also have no problem with babelfish. I only wrote the wrong address in.
Every icon that I click on, the installer pops now up 3 - 4 times. i can't work on my computer at all .
