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?

This is what Microsoft says vcredist_x86.exe is. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?familyid=200b2fd9-ae1a-4a14-984d-389c36f85647&displaylang=en

The Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) installs runtime components of Visual C++ Libraries required to run applications developed with Visual C++ on a computer that does not have Visual C++ 2005 installed.[


It was apparently needed by Akamai's ControlPanel_Installer.

I apparently denied it when Comodo warned me about it.

The other thing is that I never had this problem before, even though I had Akamai on my computer.
