For about the last week now, I'm randomly getting chunks of my data being eaten up. In an attempt to figure out what exactly it was, I opened my Resource Monitor and found a Network process occurring during those times that was identified as a23-0-160-221.deploy.static.akamaitechnologies.com - it's masquerading under the short name "Agent.exe" which is something my computer uses for my Battle.net service. However, a second instance of Agent.exe that IS my legitimate Battle.Net service is also showing up further down the list. I don't know what this is, where it came from, or how to stop it. I'm on limited data when I live so every bit counts. If someone could help me out, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hello, what I can find is this is an Akamai tech. application and is related to Hewlett Packard. Since we have a conflict of info , let's get a deeper look. Repost your info in a new topic.

Please follow this Preparation Guide, and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.
