    Is there a trojan in the Adobe Reader 9 install?

      After downloading Adobe Reader 9 to my desktop and then clicking on it to install, my AVG popped up a warning saying it contained a trojan, Air install, or something like that. I cancelled the installation, and Adobe said nothing was changed on my computer, but now I'm worried . . .
      I understand that sometimes an installation looks like a virus or some kind of malware when it isn't. I just want to know whether to turn off AVG and complete the install, or whether Adobe, or some employee, has added a trojan--not necessarily malicious, but one that adds extra load to my computer for whatever purposes are beneficial to them.
