windows 7 other language

I am running a dell studio laptop with windows 7 home. when I hover my mouse over a word on the internet, it shows up as a small box showing the word I selected plus the word in other languages. Is this a virus or some setup that I have caused.

Does this happen on all pages or just some sites

I have recently noticed the same. There is a small blue disable option in the bottom right of the box. I think it may be a recent MS update to IE8 ?

Yes, it is a toolbar option and I have now disabled it.

It is in the Google toolbar. Click on the spanner symbol, choose tools and disable the translate option.

Many thanks john bunyan. I have disabled the option you mentioned and will see how it goes.

Not a new update - translation has always been a feature of the Google toolbar
