In Safari Preferences/privacy... click details, The first thing showing up in the list is something labled "97] Plug-ins"


If you select it and click remove, it disappears briefly, and then re-appears in the list within about 30 seconds.


I have no plugins or "extensions" installed in Safari -- i.e. I have NOT installed anything.


Does anyone have any idea what this is, and why It can't be gotten rid of?


It doesn't seem to be "bothered" by any virus scanners etc. (Or at least I haven't found one that recognizes it.)
