    For the past couple of weeks I've had a mysterious DMG labelled only as "Installer" appear on my desktop at seemingly random intervals. (Since I normally have a bunch of open windows cluttering the desktop, its appearance kind of sneaks up on me.) Of course I eject it without opening whatever's in it. But then within a couple of days, there it is again....

    What should I do about this?

    In the middle of several books.
    AdWare Medic (free) will get rid of it. What you have is called Genio. More than likely, you picked it up from installing something recently.

    You really should look at what is in it. It's likely an autoupdater for something you have installed.
