NetSpeed App Removal

NetSpeed App falls into the category of ad-supported programs, despite of how it is promoted. The adware claims to be a useful tool that can help you test your Internet speed. It even has an official page, netspeedapp.com, that actually looks more or less reliable. You should not be fooled by that, because the main goal of the software has nothing to do with bringing you helpful features.
