Everyone should know that all the browser extensions including InetStat, no matter if they are functional, are the vulnerabilities for every browser where they are installed. The browser vendors produce systematic updates, due to which the safety of the browser is absolute. The presence of any browser add-on can put the browser security at stake. And, consequently, some web swindlers can infect your PC or thieve your sensible info. If you are not able to conceive your life without browser extensions, then I can advise you to install browser programs from well-known vendors only, may be it will help you to defend your computer. But you should know that it is better not to install any extensions at all.
But if you still need to have any browser extension then be prepared that this extension will receive approval to collect your sensitive data that you type on various social networks and can pass it to the third parties. You should realize that to install a browser extension is like installing a program. Will you download software if its vendor is unknown? I think, no. So, you also should think about the extension that you are eager to install.
InetStat, as an advertising add-on, is more dangerous, because there is no assurance that the advertising notification is true and that the web address that is mentioned in the announcement is secure. If you are eager to have InetStat or any other browser extension that demonstrates you special deals then you should be ready that it is able to cheat you.

Also these methods are very effective, so you will reach the aim and the browser add-on will be eliminated together will all its manifestations. It is an easy method as well; it yields merely to the automatic way of removal. But occasionally, using this method users are surprised that the adware is installed again in the browser and they have to fulfill any other methods to remove it.
But there is one more manual removal instruction using which you should delete files, folders and registry entries. This way of removal is not harmful in case if you can perform it gingerly or commit it to the experienced person who knows what and why should be deleted. In order to make this method safer you should create the backup of the registry. Do not forget that only the listed elements of the software should be deleted and no one more otherwise the computer will not work. If you do not realize what registry key is and where it can be, then you should follow automatic technique not to break your computer.

These methods are the most forceful. In spite of the great inequality in the price (Repair Shop service depends on the complication of the problem and may cost up to $300, but paid antivirus costs up to $60) these methods are almost equal in the effectiveness and in the results. I should also mention that paid antiviruses always has support service (sometimes for free) that will remove the virus like in an expensive computer repair shop.
