When I start my Mac it starts running this program that makes my laptop's fans stars going as fast as they can and my laptop starts over heating. I looked into my activity monitor and it showed my activity and my laptops activity I was using 5.00% of my laptops duo core and my Mac was using 54.00% on a program called netsession_Mac_8d9378b. It's been doing this for maybe a month now and it's starting to scare me. My laptop has less battery because of the amount of power going into this program i need help. I like my Mac and I don't want to see it die a slow and painful death what's happening?

Maybe a month ago you installed Adobe CS?

Check your Startup items in System Preferences - Accounts.



Note: moved to it's own thread... unrelated to thread it was posted in.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

It's Akamai download manager; gametreemac.com uses it, for example. If it's using processor power, just find your Akamai folder in Applications and run uninstall.app.
