Uniblue Registry Booster

If anyone can give me some help on this I would be very grateful.
I first noticed that there was a "Google Update" asking me if I wanted to update. So I proceeded with the download. The last thing to download was the Adobe Reader 8 but unfortunately it could not download successfully this Adobe Reader 8. It mentioned something about not being able to locate the Adobe Reader 7.0.7 - Italiano.msi. Note,I am actually residing in Italy hence the "Italiano.msi" but my first language is English.
So then I tried to locate this Adobe Reader 7.0.7 by going to Programmes and then to the "Adobe" file, where I discovered "Acrobat 7", then double clicked on "Active X", then double clicked on "Acro PDF.ITA , whereupon it told me it was impossible to open this file but that it can search the web to locate this programme. It took me to Windows File Association where it said it did not recognise the file. It told me to go to Windows Live Search.
In Windows Live Search I saw this:
"ITA(.ITA) - Information. Click here to Run a Free Scan for ITA Errors".
It was here that I downloaded this "Uniblue Registry Booster". The Uniblue Registry Booster has detected 896 errors in my files! It is asking me to repair it by clicking the button.
Now I am really scared because I don't know if I have just introduced myself to a "gimmick" and to a virus!
My qestions are:
(1) Is this Uniblue Registry Booster legitimate or is it a virus?
(2) If it is not a virus can I therefore continue with the repair on these 896 errors it claims to have detected?
(3) Was the Google Update legitimate or was that a virus aswell?
(4) And how can I finish the download of this Adobe Reader 8? Do I need to download Adobe Reader 7.0.7 in order to download the Adobe Reader 8?
Things are beginning to look a little bit messy with my computer and I don't like this. Also I did notice that the computer was a little slow in responding every time I was clicking things. Not a good sign or am I getting paranoid?
I would appreciate some feed back if anyone knows about this. Thanks!
