Looking for a download/monito utillity

Just wondering if anybody can help with suggestions in trying to monitor the total monthly amount of data downloaded - trying to keep an eye on how much the kids are downloading.

TIA ......

Yes BT 2Mb BB just wanting to check that I'm/we stay within the 15Gb limit. Their monitor either doesn't work for me or simply ins't functional yet.

Another comlication is that the BB connection is shared between 2 PC's

The best one I've used is called RAS Graph & Stats click here. Just place a 'minimised' shortcut of it in your Programs/Startup folder. Only limitation is the one Completealias mentions about NetMeter, but if no one is going to mess about with the data file then it's fine. G

'shared between 2 PCs'. Hmmm, didn't see that. Install it on both PCs & manually add the data from both every once in a while or as often as you need to. If I come across a better/easier solution will return to post it. G

Both suggestions look promising - thanks for the lighting fast responses. I did search the net beforehand - but have been looking in the wrong place.

Thanks again for all replies ;-)
