I had a free programme called NetMeter which monitored how much I downloaded. It was ideal for what i wanted. It suddenly disappeared. It is still there in START-Programs but if ou clic on it it just closes. it has an uninstall option that also just closes START down when clicked. It has disappeared from windows explorer also.I thought I'd reinstall it so went to uninstall programs. Message was that the program was already uninstalled. I tried to reinstall the program from the web site but it would not install as it said it was already installed. It is not of major importance unless it is a sign of something more serious although I don't like having this "ghost" programme on the computer that looks as if it might not be a good programme anyway. any suggestions would be appreciated including why it should just disappear. Of course the programme writer provides no support.
I think I mentioned that I could no longer find in windows explorer. The file no longer appears in Program Files, unless it has been made invisible somehow. I have tried a registry clean with Ashampoo Win Optimiser and it did not have obvious reference to the programme.
Is what you want still on Add/Remove programmes? If it is then on the April CD, Issue 129 of PC Advisor, under shareware, there is a programme called Advanced Uninstaller Pro. It has a 21 day trial period. Using it I finally managed to shift some rubbish from my PC. I had to use `Force Remove` to do so. Might be worth a try
I used Netmeter until a knowledgable member of the forum pointed out click here which does a better job. It appeared to me NetMeter only kept a record of the day's browsing, total was always empty. Remove the program and its folders and start menu entries then clean your registry click here
If you are after something to keep an eye on your bandwidth usage on a second-by-second basis, LanMonitor is useful, but the author's site is often down - give the link a try though click here
