NetMon is an alias name for the infamous potentially unwanted program InetStat, also known as InterStat. The program is presented at interstat.eu, but our malware researchers do not recommend installing it. In fact, this report has been created to help users remove NetMon, because it is not a reliable program. You will most likely need to delete NetMon if you live in Germany; however, it would not be that surprising to discover this PUP evolving. All in all, regardless of how this application has been installed or where you live, you need to consider removing it.

When installed, NetMon adds a system tray icon that shows download and upload speeds. This is all that the program appears to do. Unfortunately, it has been discovered that NetMon can also silently open Chrome and Internet Explorer windows. If you do not remove the PUP, it could generate traffic to various sites, as well as generate ad clicks for watch4.de. Some malware researchers even rush to identify and then remove NetMon as a malicious Trojan, because it can start automatically with Windows without permission. This kind of activity cannot be ignored, which is why the removal of the PUP is recommended.

The files of NetMon are signed by Astori LLC, but the activity of this program is not always predictable. If you download this application from its official website, you can check the company’s Terms of Use and Privacy Policy statements to know exactly how it works. Unfortunately, if NetMon comes bundled with third-party software, it is possible that this application will be less reliable. Our researchers have found that NetMon could be carried by Amonetize bundles. In this case, you might need to delete NetMon together with OffersWizard, DolphinDeals, Remarkit, Plus-HD, Wajam, and other unreliable ad-supported programs. If you don’t delete these programs, you could be exposed to unreliable content.

If you find an uninstaller for NetMon using the manual removal instructions below, you need to run it without any hesitation. If the uninstaller does not exist, you need to kill the process called inetstat.exe and delete the file that is usually found under %appdata%\InetStat\. If the manual removal does not work, you can install an automatic malware remover. Choose a reliable and up-to-date remover, such as SpyHunter, for best results. If you choose to postpone the removal of NetMon, the potentially unwanted program might continue connecting to the web and generating traffic to unfamiliar sites, all of which could be dangerous.
