User Reviews of the "netsession_win.exe"

  • SAFErating from user Richrd (Variant: 7407804)

    It does ask to get installed as part of other software. It asks something along the lines of do you want to improve speeds of [xxxxx] software using Akamai technology? If you answer yes, then it gets installed. I too forgot that I had installed it but I remember many months back answer that type of question referring to Akamai technology. It is NOT a virus but can be uninstalled if you want it to. It is nothing more than an internet helper, not unlike many others that get installed from Google, Adobe, Apple, etc...
