Are you interested in monitoring your networking and checking the items that were downloaded or uploaded? If you are, NetMeterX might seem like a program that is just right for you. It is completely free to download, and users are not obligated to pay anything to use the services. The application’s window includes the $ icon, and if you click it, you are introduced to a Bitcoin wallet address (13WSwwyk1JUHiged8BTQ1UK7xfrjW36Bre) to which you can transfer money as a donation. At the time of analysis, two transactions were recorded. Of course, you do not need to donate if you do not want to, and we certainly do not recommend wasting your money on this suspicious piece of software. On the contrary, we recommend removing it from your Windows operating system. If you are not sure why you should delete NetMeterX, continue reading this report. If you want to get rid of the PUP (potentially unwanted program) right away, use the guide below.
It is highly unlikely that you downloaded NetMeterX on its own. This program does not have an official download page, and it is not presented via reliable file-sharing websites. Most likely, its developer has employed questionable, unreliable, and maybe even malicious installers to distribute it across the web. That means that NetMeterX could be packaged along with PUPs, Trojans, adware, keyloggers, and, of course, harmless applications. How to distinguish between malicious and reliable programs? Sometimes, that is impossible to do manually, but you can install a malware scanner to help you decide what is actually going on. If you are lucky, you will find that the only thing you need to delete from your operating system is the PUP itself. If you are not so lucky, you might realize that you need to eliminate malicious threats. If you discover more critical threats that require removal, act quickly. Either use the manual removal guides that are available on our website, or immediately employ an anti-malware program.
Although network monitoring apps can appear to be useful, because they are primarily used to find failing components and notify the administrator about necessary fixes, not all of them can be trusted. NetMeterX is at the top of the list for us today because this application is completely unpredictable. We do not know who created it (the digital signature points to STAFF4IMAGING LTD). We do not know how much data it can record. We do not know how it might work in the background. Some users claim that the PUP showcases advertisements and random notifications, but we could not detect any activity related to that. Obviously, if you are introduced to ads or notifications, keep in mind that they could be misleading, route to unreliable websites, or simply confuse you. In general, trusting the PUP is risky business, simply because we know so little about it. Its creator has made sure of it! This is, without a doubt, a reason good enough to remove NetMeterX.
If you are not so sure about NetMeterX and whether or not you should remove it, it is probably a good indication that you should get rid of this potentially unwanted program. You should only use and trust programs and services you can trust 100%. If you have even slight suspicion that something is not right, you want to look for a better alternative, and we are sure that you can replace the PUP with something much more useful. If you choose to remove NetMeterX, you can follow the instructions posted below. They do not require you to install anything. However, if you have problems with the removal – for example, if you cannot erase other active threats – you might benefit from a legitimate anti-malware program. As long as you install a reliable one, it will automatically delete PUPs and other threats, and your operating system will be protected.
