Preferred Solution: Solved: important question about Akamai netsession

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The Akamai NetSession Interface is technology that is integrated into other software applications that utilize the Akamai desktop networking technology. Akamai also distributes a Download Manager that can integrate with the Akamai NetSession Interface.
You will have to go back to the website you downloaded from before and see if you can download the software again.

I wanted to improve my system performance and ran across this program. Does this program serve any positive purpose or is it just another parasite I don't need?

A:Akamai NetSession Client

It's not malicious, but you won't hurt anything by removing it.It's from a company called Akamai Technologies. Akamai is a very popular content delivery network used by large websites and popular software applications. Akamai has placed this applet on your computer because you have installed a program that relied on Akamai (list of Akamai customers) for part of it's function. The applet is intended to make downloads from Akamai servers faster for your computer and other computers near you on the internet. It does this by creating a private peer-to-peer network, a model which is very efficient for delivering large amounts of data. If you want to remove it without breaking anything, look through the list of Akamai customers and check for any publishers you have software from. You must decide whether you like having the program that uses Akamai more or less than not having Akamai's client. If you decide to remove the Akamai client, you can follow these instructions to do so. Uninstalling the Akamai client may not actually break any applications, but you should be prepared for that possibility if you remove it.

You must have some Adobe products. I've never see it on my PC but have on my Mac. It is used by Adobe as a download manager.

I heard that data can still be recovered even after being formatted. I also heard that GetDataBack is a good software that I might buy. The question is how is this possible? Is there a way for files not being able to get recovered?
 

A:Solved: Important question about formated hard drive that can be recovered

Yes, it is possible. Especially if you do a quick format it is easy to recover (quick format doesn't overwrite the drive.) A full format is harder but still possible.
To avoid recovery you'd be looking for some program to "shred" or "nuke" the drive, overwrite it with random data that makes your data indistinguishable from the new junk to any recovery program.

This is an example, not a recommendation as I've never had to use one. Darik's Boot and Nuke overwrites all detected hard disks, useful for when you want to shred away your own private data and reinstall before selling the computer. Don't try it if you only want to keep your OS safe!

If ever I back-up a file in CD (.exe, .rar .scr) with Virus like
Win32.Virtub.Gen.12 = reader_s.exe

and copy-paste it again to new/fresh copy of Windows XP.
Do I get infected by copying it only?

What I mean is, if the file (.exe) is infected as long as you never accessed it or install it you will never be get infected again?

And if it is .HTML, as long as you never open it with Internet you will never get infected again?

I'm asking it because, I'm in the process of getting back my back-up to my computer.

My norton deleted it before it was hardly placed...
My problem now is...
On my site:

I was able to play my flash animations..
Now, when I click on a flash to play...
It just goes to the same page...

Did the virus do this?
Or, what's wrong?

I was able to click and play them when I didn't have the virus...

Note: The virus I had spread through Kazaa and was named:

"w32.kwbot.f.virus" was also created after...

See this tutorial:

Advanced Boot Options
Do the part that turns on Boot Logging.

Then after you boot your system, read the log.
You will likely see the system waiting for device drivers or other things to load.
Sometimes if you uninstall something like Norton AV, it doesn't remove the stuff from the registry and the machine sits waiting for a driver or other software to load, that no longer exists on the system.

It should give some clue. Post the log when you get it(make sure it doesn't have any text with your real name or any of that before posting.)

edit: btw if you did uninstall a Norton or Nero software, you need to download a removal or cleanup tool to get everything off.

I personnally use the last 2 and think that is fine, They don't need much resources and are very effective. Note I have the free versions. They compliment each other and your antivirus very well as no one tool will get everything.

Okay after going to dell support and trying a bunch of new things they are sending me a new hard drive and windows XP cd. Now my question is how do I go about saving all my stuff? There are programs I have on here that I have no clue where the cd is can they be saved? Also what about saving my email and any info I have under my favorites etc.. And lastly how do I go about erasing EVERYTHING off the old hard drive(after I save everything) so that no information is able to be taken off of it? I really appreciate any help I don't want to lose anymore of my files. THANKS AGAIN!!!
 

A:IMPORTANT new question from a newbie

Why not use this old drive as your D: or whatever, and just use the new one for your operating system?

Only way that I know of to keep everything and keep it runing lik eit is now, is to Ghost it. What that does is copies EVERYTHING from that hard drive to your new hard drive INCLUDING the errors.

Why not post a HiJack log on here and see if someone here can walk you through fixing your problems? That way you will be free of your problems.

Hi, I'm new to this forum. Last night, I had to reinstall my Microsoft Windows XP Professional Edition to the computer I've been using for the past 2 years because it wouldn't go past the Welcome screen on Start up. After i finished reinstalling, my soundcard isn't being picked up by this new installation. I can't hear anything on my computer and when I try to fix it under Control Panel, it says there is nothing installed in my computer. I've been using my friend's speakers for the past two years and I don't have any CDs for it. Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this problem? If so Thanks Alot.

I'm planning on doing clean install of Windows 10 for my PC this weekend. Currently I'm also using W10. I am going to install onto the same hard drive (SSD) as it is currently installed. It will put the older version of W10 into a Windows.old folder which I'm going to back it up to an external hard drive if I ever going to need files from it. Now after that I'll launch a Disk Clean-up to remove previous Windows installations (aka Windows.old) and then I'll remove the older version of W10 from dual boot (if it will be there ofcourse). My question is: are my previously mentioned steps enough to uninstall my older version of W10 and replace it with the new one or will I still have to do something?

Windows will not "uninstall" itself. A clean install will wipe everything from the HDD so be sure to have copied anything you don't want to lose to a different drive. You may also need to save the drivers for devices if you installed any hardware after the initial install of Win10, may have them in the Downloads Folder, that's where mine are.

Hi theshiningeagle,

You can't double your speed, but you can route your traffic.

Look up "Routing Table" on Google:

http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en...G=Search&meta=

Effectively, you can tell certain IP ranges to use your Ethernet, and others to use your Wireless.

I know an administrator account is very important as thru this you can do everything. A guest account is limited. Right now Im logged in as the computer administrator. I read somewhere that for safety precaution, I should make another account [Guest] and use that account to surf, download, and have fun doing anything, while the administor account should be use only when installing security updates as the administor account is more dangerous when use. is this true?

A:Important question regarding multiple accounts

No, that's not true, just make sure that the Windows updates are always done, you have a decent internet security package running and never leave your PC alone logged on as an administrator.

So, I have a question.

The computer I am using is a computer for school, and it already had an account, but I created an account for myself. I intend to delete it before I give it back. A while back, I created a new test account with just the purpose of seeing if I could delete it. I do not have administrator privilleges, so I couldn't. I panicked, and deleted that account's folder from C:\Users.
(It has now been too long, and the Restore previous versions bit doesn't work)
Now, just earlier, I read about going to Run, and typing
"control userpasswords2"
to delete accounts, but it said that it couldn't be deleted.

I was wondering if there was any way to "Force delete" an account, or some way of getting rid of the test account, and eventually the one I use.

Please help!

Thanks in advance.

This is not intended to be a sob story but I just want you to know what it is all about. I have a niece that is slowly deteriorating from MS. She does not have much that she can do anymore but one of her enjoyments is playing a game called WSOP Challenge (world series of poker challenge). Right during Christmas the game stopped working and Sprint can't seem to help her get it back on her phone. She called me asking if I knew what to do and I tried but could not find any info on what she needed to do to get it working. Sprint told her to delete it from her phone which was not a good idea because I have found no where that she can download it from and put it back on her phone. Would anyone be so kind to give me some advice on how to fix her problem. Time is not on her side but what she does have left I want it to be very enjoyable. Thanks so much for your help.

newegg backs anything and everything they sell. if you go to order it and you have to use a newegg account then it is probably going from one person to newegg to you. if it just links you to another website then be warned. if you actually have to order it using a newegg account and you are invoiced from newegg then they will back it. make sure you read the specific warranty information on neweggs website for that product before you buy it though. (that is if it is coming from newegg) if in doubt, send neweggs customer service an email, i have sent them a few and they all seem to have ended the enquiry reasonably. this is coming from a guy that has purchased over 5 grand on that website.

Is it a virus? I googled it and it seems other have recently discovered it aswell. I just did 2 diffrernt virus scans earlier (Avira ad Super AntiSpyware), before I noticed it and they were clean.

Ive already seen the offical site and its just some download manager but I think its a virus cause it wasnt there before.

EDIT: Well I looked through some files in the folder and it looks like its came as part of an online game I recently downloaded. I did a bit more looking through google and it seems to be a normal part of some online games, and was once partners with McAfee?...well I dont know maybe its ok.

Recently, I installed a trial version of Emsisoft. In looking at the "Behavior Blocker" function, The Akamai application was flagged. After clicking "edit rules", I noticed boxes were checked that would ALLOW Trojan dropping, backdooring and various malware-related actions. Am I safe in assuming that with these boxes checked as "allowed" actions, my computer is at risk? The Akamai Net Session Interface was included as part of Autodesk software programs being installed. Evidently, it allows Autodesk products to communicate with my computer via their Server. I'll research Akamai and Emsisoft's definitions further, but I'm hoping someone can provide me with their insight. If necessary, I can provide log files and screenshots of what I found.
 
Thank you in advance.

A:Akamai Net Session Interface

Hi goaliedan,
The rules you can create allow you to specify what type of behavior you want to monitor for a certain application. The akamai alert was most likely a false positive (I can only guess here, but if you have more information about the file I can verify this for you). If you create a rule to allow or block the akamai executable, you can opt to allow or block all types of behavior, or you can select only, say backdoor activity (just an example). This has no influence on what the behavior blocker will do with the rest of processes/applications it monitors.
 
You can safely create a rule to allow all behavior from this process though, this will not put your computer at risk. Doing this will not actually allow akamai to install a backdoor (to stick with that example), it will simply not monitor the process for activity that may or may not be backdoor related.
 
Its good to keep in mind that behavioral detection looks at what a file does, and does not take in consideration where the file comes from. So, it notices a behavioral pattern and alerts you. If you want to be sure you can upload the file that caused the alert to http://www.virustotal.com and post the link to the scan results here.

Recently, I got a warning from Comodo DefensePlus that Akamai's ControlPanel_Installer.exe was trying to execute vcredist_x86.exe. Worried, I ran a few scans with avast! Antivirus and MalwareBytes Anti-Malware, along with HijackThis. All of the scans came up clean. Should I be worried about this warning?

Can anyone explain the technical infos as to why certain Windows processes connect to Akamai Content Delivery Network (CDN) ?

For example, Windows Explorer (file system - explorer.exe) and Settingsynchost.exe ?

I know blocking Windows Explorer from network access doesn't break anything - at least not that I can tell. Others I am not sure of as I haven't tested.

There is scant infos regarding Windows-Akamai CDN online other than Azure (which I don't use as I'm on W8.1 Home). Extensive web search turns up very little technical infos... and what infos there is turns out to be incorrect (on Wilders thread).

Any feedback on this topic would be great help.

Hi
Why has this certificate from akamai.net appeared on my computer, never had anything like this happen before?
I was not viewing any websites at the time, when I closed down macrium reflect (backup software) it was behind the software window.
 
 
View the cert here:https://flic.kr/p/BkSDUe
 
Is this a possible infection?
 
thanks

A:Why has this certificate from akamai.net appeared on my computer

Jonathon:
 
I think that this is your post over at the Malwarebytes Forum.  Mr. David Lipman responded to you over on that Forum.
 
I don't believe that this represents any threat.  You can, if you want, run anti-virus and anti-malware scans to reassure yourself.
 
It is probable some web site/application inserted the certificate.  For more information about akamai net, see this link.
 
Have a great day.

Hi All you fellow 'Forumers',
Another day, another problem, I'm certainly learning the hard way.

Last night in the forum I had problems with NvCpl.Dll Errors, missing Entry et.
Great advice from Richc,thanks, but still unresolved totally. But that will do for later in the day.

I decided to further check items for out of date drivers, software etc., and went on the Asus support site to check on motherboard 'bits & pieces'.

Downloaded the Asus support Wizard, and got security alert 'Active X' is a problem.
AKAMAI DOWNLOAD MANAGER was the instigator of this.

Tried to find it, but where the chips its gone I don't know!
Looked through all my files I can think of. Been to download Program Files, no luck,

Has anyone come across this before? Would appreciate guidance in this daily toil of 'Computer Education'. It's Sunday I shouldn't have Homework!! Thank's in advance.

So this is new to me, this Akamai Download Manager that ASUS now requires to download drivers off their website? My installation disk that came with the motherboard doesn't support Windows 7 either. I looked around and can't find any downloads for this DLM, I tried some simple Download Manager but it wouldn't work for the ASUS website.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

But everytime I restart my computer and log in the same log box appears.

I don't open any programs/applications/web browsers etc. The Log In box to connect to a1873.g.akamai.net just appears."

I have checked using iobit my startup programs and cannot find any program that looks suspicious.

A:akamai.net/hotmail glitch bad link

Welcome to Seven Forums kneedeep73. Akamai is a content delivery network that many legit sites use. Including Microsoft. The address was likely a https://a248.e. address, and the https://a248.e. part means that it is images delivered from a secure page, delivered with a certificate with an akamai.net domain. See if you can capture the entire address and post it here. It wouldn't hurt to d/l and scan with Malwarebytes and Superantispyware, but even Windows update uses akamai.net.

A:svchost (netsvcs) extensive download from Akamai - why?

If you look at your second attached thumbnail picture showing ports etc. It states 'activesync' So, it's syncing with your computer system with their servers of the files you share/backup or whatever it is. Also, their services may also be used to update their software with security patches etc. If you wanted to see what's going on in more depth you would need to use a program called Wireshark so you can analyze/capture the network traffic. IMO I wouldn't be to worried about it. It's doing what it needs to do to function correctly.

A:svchost (netsvcs) download from Akamai - What is initiating?

I think the next step would be to try software like Microsoft Network Monitor or it's newer replacement Microsoft Message Analyzer. Or Wireshark. But I've tried that myself and I'd say it's impossible to fully understand what and why the OS itself is connecting and downloading, especially when it's from Akamai and similar.

How important is it when I burn a DVD, that I select data verification? I thought the hardware already does that to some degree. Is this just peace of mind then, or is there real merit in validating what you think you just burned? It adds about 50% to the time it takes to burn the DVD, so it's not trivial.

Hi, I just restored my laptop to factory settings, windows update has now decided it wants to install 115 updates, 107 of which are 'important'. Is it necessary to install all of them? Can I get away with just getting the most recent ones? It wouldn't bother me but they will take an age to install and take up the best part of 1GB of disk space...

Greetings and Welcome to The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.

Please Help The most recent problem I am having is that I can't use the one website that is essential to my one slow [SOLVED] website ONLY runs important work I am a Realtor and I have to use the MLS system on armls marketlinx com The site runs so slow that it is completely useless taking like minutes to load and then minutes to switch pages Everything else works fine and loads at a normal pace but the ARMLS website takes or minutes to open a screen after the initial logon which proceeds as normal [SOLVED] ONLY one important website runs slow Most other websites run at a normal speed on this computer I have put it in the trusted sites zone for my firewall and Internet Explorer and enabled cookies for it and I have dumped the temporary internet files but it still runs ridiculously slow If I bring it up on my husbands computer it runs fine His computer is on the same home network in the same room as mine Thanks Audrey

A:[SOLVED] ONLY one important website runs slow

Audrey,

I found your post when looking for a solution to a problem one of my clients had. She is a realtor that had the same EXACT symptoms that you do with armls.marketlinx.com. I was dissapointed to see that no one had replied to your post and there were no other posts anywhere on the web about this problem. After hours of experimenting with her system, I finally traced the problem to ZoneAlarm Pro. After uninstalling ZA and then installing other AntiVirus, AntiSpyware, Firewall options, the armls.marketlinx.com web page regained its original speed!

Now I'm not bad mouthing ZoneAlarm, (I use the free version myself on my personal computer), but I could not find any settings or options in this program that would let this web page perform normally. If you have ZoneAlarm installed on your computer, (especially the Pro version), I would suggest uninstalling it and see if you get the same results.

Good Luck!

I just bought a third hard drive, a 320gb SATA, so now I have:

Seagate 120gb IDE, 7200r, 2MB Cache
WD Caviar 250gb SATA, 7200r, 8MB Cache
Hitachi 320gb SATA, 7200r, 16MB Cache

Now I have the hard drives partitioned as I like but with the inclusion of the third drive things get a little messy. Right now Windows is on the Seagate drive that has 2MB cache and the other drives I use for storing data. But Windows is acheing for a complete reinstall..

So I was wondering should I leave my partitions as they are, I like them as they are , or should I install Windows on the new drive that has the most Cache memory? How important is it, more so will I gain significant improvement in performance if my OS resides on the drive with the 16MB cache?
 

A:Solved: Hard Drive Cache, how important is it?

There will be a significant performance increase from 2mb to 16mb of disk cache memory. Also, I'll bet that either of the SATA drives will have a higher bit density on the platters, so they'll also have a faster transfer rate as well. Time to relegate that old 120gig drive to data storage or backup.

Hi, there. I need a question answered. I was just thinking, if I was given the choice between upgrading a processor or graphics card for my laptop to play games, which is more important? Graphics card or the processor? I heard that the graphics card is more important than the processor, because the graphics card has a more significant improvement on games compared to the processor.

My lower status bar, the one that normally has Foxytunes, Download Manager, No-Script, etc. is missing.

I've re-installed, I've uninstalled and re-installed, but it won't come back.

(Last week someone on a forum posted a link to a virus, which made not being able to use No-script very disturbing)

I can't figure out what the problem is.

It might be worth noting, when I re-install I always get back my extensions and bookmarks, could it be that FF just doesn't let me fully uninstall and this is the problem?

Also (in case this has any relevance) I clicked on something in the help bar called "extension repair" I believe. I was hoping it would do something, well it got rid of some help option and I'm not sure what else it did, which is kind of annoying.

I appreciate any help, thank you.

A:[SOLVED] My bottom status bar is gone and is making many important ext.s impossible t

I take it you've done the obvious and clicked View > Status Bar.

Try disabling all your extensions then re-enabling them one at a time, restarting Firefox after each one. Some, like AutoHide, have the option to remove the status bar.

When you uninstalled, did you delete the hidden Profiles folder?

Start > Control Panel > Folder Options > View > Show hidden files and folders

I have Windows 7 and get automatic updates from Microsoft. The problem I am having is that there is one particular update that will not install and I cannot find any method of removing from the listing of important updates. The update is "Windows Live Essentials 2011 (KB2434419)". It is 156 Mb in size. When it attempts to install it produces a message something to the effect that I have a "different flavor" of Essentials and it stops installation. But, I cannot cancel the installation - it just sits there. Is there a method of removing this item from the listing, or is there some other method of not receiving it in the first place? I have turned off the automatic installation of updates so that I can unselect this one each time there are others to install.

A:[SOLVED] May have deleted important Internet file - browsers not loading

Hi and welcome to TSF.
You could try removing IE using add.remove in the control panel then reinstalling, again using add/remove.

A couple times now I've been asked to provide "computer specs" to help solve a problem with an online game. I'm very newbie when it comes to this stuff, so what kinds of information should you provide about your computer to help them solve the problem? Also, where would you find this information on your computer? D:

I remember reading somewhere that certain information you shouldn't give out, which is why I'm asking.

Edit: Just realized this is probably less of a tip and more so belongs in the "games" section, but I don't know how to switch the location. >.<
