I get the warning that the Akamai Download Manager ActiveX Control 2.x unsafe.
The path would be F: \ WINDOWS \ Downloaded Program Files \ Manager.exe.
Same with the Akamai Download Manager ActiveX Control V2.ocx
However, I can not find this folder. Also using the download solution in the toolbox to get nothing. What is, however, Akamai program?

The file is on your F drive. If this is a backup drive or reinstallation location U can safely ignore by using the Ignore Rule in the Toolbox

That is not the issue on my computer. The issue is that PSI says the file is there. And it isn't. And, jicya, yes, I have my Windows Explorer view set to show all files, hidden, system, etc.

I have even got through the registry and deleted all mention of Akamai or downloadmanagerv2.ocx.

Nonetheless,PSI says the file is there. Setting PSI to ignore what isn't there isn't really much of a solution. I would like to know what is going on and why PSI thinks there is such an app there.

You might just need to empty your recycle bin.

The things I did:
Used regedit to find and remove anything appurtaing to either "Akamai" or "downloadmangerv2.ocx" (the files identified in SCI.
Emptied the recycle bin.
Used two different registry cleaners to find any broken links.
Did a full system (hidden and system files) for both "Akamai" and "downloadmanagerv2.ocx"
Did a text search for any files containing references to "Akamai" or "downloadmanagerv2.ocx".
Ran dskchk /F to find and fix or remove any broken files that might contain reference to "Akamai" or "downloadmanagerv2.ocx"
Ran a defrag to further force clean-up of indices.

Nothing.

What is curious is that PCI persists in saying there is a file "downloadmangerv2.ocx" in c:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files that is not there, even after rescans by PSI.

Brilliant! Found it and deleted it. Slight correction and shortening for efficient:

launch command prompt from accessories in the programs list
type: cd c:\windows\downloaded program files
press enter
type: dir d*
press enter
find the correct file in the list
type: del <name of correct file without these braces>
press enter
type: exit
press enter

Used your recommendation and it worked. Just took a while for PSI to recognize that the file was gone.

I found the file. I also ran the suggested fix. The fix says that it worked, but when looking at the file it is not modified. Secunia still says it is insecure.
