I've been having troubles with my computer lately and I just found out this was using 25% of my bleep CPU.
"It did not _sneak_ in your computer" Have you ever heard of POTENTIALLY UNWANTED PROGRAMS? Things that run in the background by itself that you didn't know installed itself? NOBODY reads ToA except lawyers that are paid for that, and that doesn't make it less sneaky, it makes it "legal".
Uninstalling this thing was a bleep, I can't remove the folder (which is hidden 2 directories deep in appdata), if I select it in task manager, it starts moving up and down the task list every second like it's trying to be unclickable, and as soon as I forcefully shut it down, a new process reopens immediately. Uninstalling it from the control panel took like 3-5 minutes from clicking "uninstall program" to the uninstall to actually begin, the entire time nothing seemingly happening.
As soon as I uninstalled it, my CPU usage went from 100% can't load a webpage to 15% running a big max graphics video game.
Every websites (3 total threads from 3 different small forums found on google because this program totally isn't sneaky) tells me it's trustworthy and that I shouldn't uninstall it, but this thing is a virus if I ever saw one. If you got it, get rid of it. I don't need anyone to reply to this or to tell me I'm necroing, I don't care about your favorite subforum getting 1 old post bumped up, I'm posting it because this is one of the only threads about it on the internet and I want a REAL solution to show upon Google if anyone ever has my problem, which apparently nobody on the planet did but me did.

I know this is like super-old. but this is NOT malware. Akami Netsession is used by companies involved with distributing &preventing the hacking of Korean MMO games, so every time you play that game, Akami Netsession will reinstall.
