    Hi gerardwil,

    Akamai is what you might call "rent-a-server"

    What you are seeing are probably the adds on the site that are fetched from one of their servers.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    "akamai" is a large provider of localized mirroring on the Internet. They provide alternate download sites for many, many sites and companies. Even Microsoft uses akamai for Windows Update downloads. It is quite normal nowadays to be pulling content of some sort from akamai when you use various sites, especially big popular sites.

    I just grabbed the first free download I could from download.com to reconfirm it and it actually came from here:
