What makes you think it is? Have you checked running processes / startup programs etc? –  Joe Taylor Mar 21 '13 at 12:58
    
I'm using shared computers and here many computers have installed this software. –  Mohit Mehta Mar 21 '13 at 12:59

If it is your computer (as in 'my PC'). If you did not install it and you did not run any untrusted software it should be fine. If other have access to it and know the administrator password: Assume it is compromised. Wipe it and reinstall. Keep the admin password secret. If it is a school PC which is not your but which you are using: 1) Change the post text to "is installed on the PC that I am using". and 2) You will never know absolutely sure. –  Hennes Mar 21 '13 at 13:06
    
"I'm using shared computers and here many computers have installed this software." - Then assume the PC assigned to you has it too and tailor your actions accordingly. If it's not your personal machine and the organisation is legally allowed to monitor usage, you cannot uninstall the program even if you manage to detect it. –  Karan Mar 21 '13 at 18:29

Some things to check:

  • The application uses port 5444. Check if that port is in use and which executable uses it with "netstat -anp" in a command window).

  • Check if folder "c:\program files (x86)\network outlook administrator pro" or "c:\program files\network outlook administrator pro" is present and contains files (notably executables like .\bin\nlagentpro.exe). When present the software is installed (maybe not running).

  • Check your task list for running programs that you do not recognize, then Google these executable names to see what software they belong to

You may or may not be able to do any of these tests depending on the rights you have on the computer.

Not finding any of these does not lead to the conclusion 'it is not running' (although more likely) but finding them indicates it is running.
