Is the Process "netsession_win.exe" Safe or Threat ?
SAFErating from user Richrd
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...(id: 7407804)

THREATrating from user Disgusted for file %USERPROFILE%\Local\Akamai\netsession_win.exe
Install without asking, uses your bandwidth to ease Akamai server loads (p2p style), not malicious, but certainly bloatware, breach of trust to silently install without asking permission and I consider very intrusive, no way to know what its uploading. I want to control what is uploaded from my computer to the net completely, not have it done by somebody else!(id: 2822252)
THREATrating from user Dylan for file %USERPROFILE%\Local\Akamai\netsession_win.exe
Doesn't tell you it's being installed on your computer, it does it without asking permission. It randomly uploads data and you have no control over it. Consumes bandwidth. If it fails to uninstall(which reportedly happens), go to msconfig and disable it from launching at system startup. it will still be on your computer but it won't run as long as you don't launch it manually.(id: 2822252)
THREATrating from user magix for file %USERPROFILE%\Local\Akamai\netsession_win.exe
Yes,it does trying to connect to the internet and trying to download or upload.Doing without prompting the user about the actions it wants to do,it acts like a virus,so I uninstalled it and my computer works the same.(id: 2822252)
