Hi I have several times noticed this program running on the firewall status screen

deploy.akamaitechnologies.com

Is this harmful or can I let well alone.

This is a Dell Lattitude D810 running Win XP Sp3.

Avira Premium antivirus

OA Free 4.5.1.431 Free

I see that I have several web sites related to akamai as trusted sites.

a26.ms.akamai.net

e935.g.akamaiedge.net

Should I have these as trusted web sites or is this there in error?

Hope you can assist

These entries you see in the Firewall status window are not programs. They are connections which a program (most likely your browser) is making :) Akamai is a content delivery system that many companies use to distribute their media content online. You can read more about it here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akamai_Technologies including some examples of companies that use it and what they use it for.
