Hey guys, I recently saw that this program called Akamai Netsession was automatically installed on my computer and when I googled it I got this guide.

Get rid of it & then run a full scan for viruses & malware.

There is no need or advantage to installing this type of software. It is totally unnecessary and could cause problems.. Do exactly what riider said. These two programs often unearth malware that others miss:


AdwCleaner:

Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Run the "Scan", followed by the "Clean & Repair".

MalwareBytes:

(use the "Free Download" button rather than the "Buy Now" button).
After the install go to "Settings > Protection". Under Scan Options move the "Scan for rootkits" slider over to On and Run the Threat Scan. Quarantine anything it finds.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
