An Akamai program installed by Dell to help download some files; it can usually be removed through the control panel, 'Add/Remove Software.' It appears to like to run though not really needed for anything.

This came from Dell's driver update tool that scans for current drivers.

It is a P2P software that constantly uploads and downloads content for various companies. No disclamers or installers refer to it in its installation, the website is really sketchy about its uses and functions, and it installed on a day my computer was offline.
