Editors' Review

arcai.com's free Netcut application can help you protect your LAN from ARP spoofing and other unwanted intrusions. Netcut monitors LAN activity and displays the addresses and data of all devices connected to it. You can cut off service to any LAN user, change MAC addresses, modify your network adapter settings, and more with Netcut.

Pros

Run as Administrator: Netcut recommends that you run it as a system administrator to maximize its capabilities.

Protected by Netcut Defender: Netcut includes Netcut Defender's protection for the host PC, though you can add Netcut Defender to other computers on your LAN, too (it's free).

Cut them off: You can terminate and restore network access to any computer on your LAN at will with Netcut -- even as a prank, according to the documentation.

Stay safe: Netcut also offers tips and expert advice for keeping your wired or wireless LAN safe.

Cons

Not for the inexperienced: Netcut isn't difficult to use and has plenty of online resources, but it's not for beginners. Machine-translated documentation could confuse inexperienced users.

Speed bump: Netcut can be slow to respond at times and also slowed out connection speed a bit.

Bottom Line

Netcut is a valuable tool for network administrators, and it offers an additional layer of protection against ARP spoofing (and the bad things that can follow). Netcut is free, so it's easy enough to test it in your network to see if it works for you.

"Rubbish. Uninstaller for Win 7 Pro not working!"

September 08, 2016  |  By 11stupid11

2016-09-08 01:44:28  |  By 11stupid11

 |  Version: Netcut 2.1.4

Pros

Nothing! Nothing ! Nothing!

Cons

Free Netdefender starts to nag you with banners not long after installation.
No uninstallation possible through windows programs interface. Running the uninstaller in the program directory still allows the program to load so that I have to deactivate it from startup. You guys suck big time. Some people should not be allowed to "develop" Windows applications! Go and do your homework. And Download.com should not publish such software. Every 7 year old could have done better.

Summary

See above. Should you delete my review, then I hereby ask you to delete my download.com account. I highly recommend to take this crap software offline. It was the last software I downloaded via Download.com. There is no quality assurance here. Beware of rubbish and virus laden software here.

"THIS CUTS OFF MY INTERNET CONNECTION, THIS IS A TROJAN"

November 12, 2011  |  By madatSony

2011-11-12 22:03:19  |  By madatSony

 |  Version: Netcut 2.1.4

Pros

NONE< IT IS VIRIS< MESSED UP MY COMPUTER GOOD

Cons

For six whole months I couldnt figure out why my internet connection was constantly cutting off. I was ready to buy a new computer. Then I installed ZoneAlarm and saw that this program was continually connecting to the internet and each time my connection would go dead. This is why it is called "netcut", I found out it is specifically a trojan to cut off your internet connection.
MUCH THANK YOU TO THE PERSON WHO LISTED ALL THE FILES YOU NEED TO DELETE TO GET RID OF THIS MESS, IT WAS A NIGHTMARE

Summary

WHY WOULD CNET HAVE A TROJAN PROGRAM ON THEIR SITE?

"Uninstallable"

September 11, 2011  |  By wolfstep

2011-09-11 11:28:25  |  By wolfstep

 |  Version: Netcut 2.1.4

Pros

It does what it claims to. It provides information that it claims too. Very detailed.

Cons

When you uninstall, it does not uninstall completely! It leaves files that track your usage.

Summary

This software is good, but I dont like being fooled. While I have not found all the information traked, it does just that. It becomes so intertwined in your systems files that removing it is beyond painful.
