Saves as keeps popping up and I can't stop it

Specs: Windows 7, 2ghz/ 6GB Ram
Due to the variety of software that is being affected by the same problem I am sure I have an infection on my computer. Every time I open Word or Photoshop or even the Explorer, after using them for about 15 minutes I get a Save As dialog box popping out and after that I am completely unable to go back to the problem no matter what I do. I the case of the explorer, the popping up windows is the Properties and after that I have to go to Task bar and close the program. Internet Explorer has been affected but not Firefox and Chrome.
I try to google the problem but all I got was bad answers of old similar problems. Nothing that could help me at all.
Does somebody know at least the name of the virus/trojan that could be causing it?

Thank you very much for your answer, I try both solution but it did not solve the problem. I also use Malwarebyte and although I remove some stuff, the problem persist. I am starting to think that maybe it is an Add-in being activated by some app.
I start by uninstalling Word and no success so far. I will keep going until I have nothing else to uninstall. It is a hard way, but I don't know any other.
