I strongly urge people to uninstall Aeria Ignite and Akami Network Interface. The Ignite application serves no purpose to your average user, you can get the same updates on the official website. What you have to watch out for is publishers like Aeria use these useless tools to plant 3rd party software onto your machine. In this case Ignite plants Akami. What does Akami do? It robs you of your bandwidth when your computer is connected to the internet. It seeds client installers to other Aeria players who are downloading the game client (peer to peer protocol). This is why the game installers are preserved on your hard drive (C:\AeriaGames\Downloader).
- Aeria Ignite
- Akami Netsession Interface
And just make a new shortcut:
You will also have to run a registry cleaner such as CCleaner
, to get rid of traces of Akami.
