This seems a benign and good program but beware it can be used to control your PC. I am still trying to remove networx.C:\ system 32 (drivers).

NetWorx.exe is a safe and legitimate software for traffic monitoring, made by well-known company SoftPerfect. If you have NetWorx on your computer, you downloaded or installed it some time before. If you no longer need this software, simply uninstall it (for installer version) or delete the file (for portable version), as you normally do.

Best practices for resolving networx issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with networx. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command.
