    Hi everyone!

    I have the very annoying problem that every time I connect my iPhone to the computer, safari pops up and "iphonebackupextractor-latest.dmg" is downloaded automatically. I once used iphone backup extractor to save some old messages. But now, I don't need it anymore and the problem that a 25 MB file is downloaded every time the phone is connected is very disrupting.

    How can I get completely rid of this software?! I cannot find any trace of this software on my mac. I also searched all the /Library/ and ~/Library/ folders to no avail.

    Pls help! thanks.
