What is "Netcut" and How it works?

This is a commonly used tool used on networks to cut down the network connection of victim. It makes  a Denial of Service attack on the Victim so that he doesn’t get internet access. It does so by flooding the switch with unreal MAC address entries that point to the victim’s ip address, so the packets are mapped incorrectly and the victim receives no packets. 

Lets understand how it works:
Suppose there is a Desktop PC with:

      Hostname :  C4  
      IP : 
      Gateway :
We use here 3 tools:
1.Netcut : To make Attack.
2.Ethereal : To Checks Packets.
3.AntiArp : To monitors and block all incoming and outgoing ARP traffic from / to my pc.
First we use NetCut on my machine to block user  

On the ethereal, it made 1767 ARP packets in only one minute..!

The AntiArp shows that I ‘m sending fake Mac address to the gateway and I’m disguised as the victim’s IPaddress. (while if we make a man in the middle attack , we can get victims MAC address and set is as our MAC addr and give victim other addr ) .

How to defend against a similar type of attack ?
. AntiArp is a nice tool the defends the MAC Denial of Service attack.
. NetCut itself has an option to protect my computer. (It has option protect my PC . Simply select that checkbox)

@anonymous : just use a static arp to your gateway

Is NetCut only temporary. After using it to limit my use of the internet, and then try to use it the next day, it seems that I need to re-install it.
Also, when I limit the bandwidth on a device, will that device's bandwidth stay as I've set it, until I adjust it again?
