    Mine was by AsusTech

    In my case, It asked me "bla bla" after uninstall which was remarked by AsusTech, so I remember that I've installed something, to download somethings from Asus Support page. So I just dont need it anymore and uninstalled. Nothing to worry, hopefully :-)
    Just to share my experiance. Rgds.

Who is to say that you are not a conduit for the next planning session for an incident such as the Boston bombing? My experience in LE tells me anytime that someone wants to do something in the background, time to shine the light on what is going on. Akamai never says what files or information is passed along on your bandwidth. He goes into a long winded discussion of who uses it, how certain software companies allow it (McAfee) and so on. Not! I removed it. If something does not run without it, then I figure that I did not need it in the first place.
    Seriously??? What the hell did all this crap have to do with the post??? What is in Bold is all that was needed...

    Hi. I am a new member and very impressed by everything I see here. Above advice is good and I too have uninstalled the Akamai - I think mine came with a program called Internet Download Manager (IDM).

    Welcome to this fabulous lounge, Philliat. It's been a life saver for me for years! And you'll find that the Loungers (with the possible exception of the new one above you who might have been having a bad day) are unfailingly supportive and polite in their responses.

    I was searching for information about Akamai NetSession Interface, and just thought I'd to put my 2 cents worth in...

    I was just at the Asus Support page to get a firmware update for my Asus DVD-RW.
    When i selected the "Global (DML)" link a window came up that said "To complete this download, you need to install the Akamai NetSession Interface...".
    When I selected the "Global" link, the firmware download started automatically with no other requirements.

    Don't know if this is helpful, or not. At least it didn't automatically install itself, in my case.

    They say that when everything else has failed - read the instructions. Open the Akamai Netsession Interface Console (bet you didn't know you had one). Go to the Support tab and click on View README file. It gives a full account of what the program does, why you may (or may not) want to keep it and how to remove it.
