    I have an app that keeps appearing and I don't know why. It is titled Popup in the dock. When I click on it, the app name is popuphelper, and popuphelper -> About says it's made by pharos systems. I can close it, but it comes back. I'll try and see what I do before it appears and get back to y'all. Does anyone know what this is? Is it important? Should I delete it from the Applications dir? Is it spyware that's gonna be harder to get rid of? Google and forum search don't seem to come up with much.

    I don't like the sound of it... I recomend that you download MacScan Trail and scan for spyware justincase.
