    Well I've read every page of this thread and I still don't know how to find how much I've used over the past month. That business with checking the router only tells me what I'm using now (if you can even decipher it) not what I have used in the past month

    You can call your ISP and they may be able to tell you.

    So, assuming you have a version of Windows, have you downloaded and installed either NetMeter or possibly the better, NetWorx?

    Every time there is some download activity the netmeter pops up on my desktop, it is getting very irritating, any ideas on how to stop it from popping up every few minutes?

    I no longer use Netmeter, but have you checked the various options for display alerts etc, mine never acted in this manner.

  • I've just downloaded and installed this 'tbb meter' through another series of links on this site and it doesn't work! 'Failed to initialise, Error no: 0xc0000135'. I'm trying to cut down on my downloads, so don't want to just try my luck with the next one. Any advice?

    I used to use Netmeter, but it doesn't discriminate between traffic between PCs on WiFi and internet traffic - this meant that sharing music, video or large files at home messed up the results.

    Based on recommendations from reading this thread, I now use Networx, which has an option to ignore local traffic. I ran Networx in parallel with Netmeter for a few days to check it worked, and the figures were almost identical, (except for when I did transfer a file locally), so I now run Networx alone

    Another good thing is that Networx is actually being developed at the moment, whereas Netmeter has been abandoned.
