Re: Can't find downloaded files, part 2?
Where did you download the file from? Was it the Adobe website or a third
party website? It sounds like this Akamai may have been installed prior to
the file downloading? Many websites will install a download manager without
the users knowledge by placing a notice about the download manager being
installed in an obscure location.
Have you looked for a folder called Akamai on the system? Does Akamai appear
in the Control Panel / Programs and Features list as being installed? If
Akamai is a download manager, it probably saves files to it's own download
If you find any references to this download manager, I would uninstall it
immediately and go to the Adobe website to get the program.
