    Why would Akamai's netsession be triggering my network's firewall upon login?

    Anaklusmos

      Whenever I log in, I get a windows firewall popup about "netsession_win". Apparently it's trying to download something onto my computer every time I log in, and windows firewall is blocking it. I don't get any dialogs from adobe about an update, and no other related windows pop up before or after the error message.

       

      What could netsession be trying to download, and how do I stop it from doing this?

       

      Any help would be appreciated. I'm running windows XP, and the error only occurs when logged into a non-administrator computer. It's also occurred to a number of other people on my university's network.
