ibshaw has W7 64b and if he wants this he needs .NET, current version: 4.0.
This doesn't work or install on such a system, to be sure, I've just tried it on one of mine....

Works fine here. Windows 7 comes with .Net 4.0 and 3.5 which I believe comes with 2.0 with it. You must have downloaded the older version which doesn't work on Windows 7 SP1

That's strange, I've got .NET 4.0 on W7 64b. Did you test the install on 64b? It wouldn't even install here...

Yep, Win 7 Ultimate X64 with Sp1 installed. Installed first time, no need to even run in compatibility mode.

A thought occurs to me. OP who is your ISP? Most UK ISP's now offer usage monitoring, and will send you an email when you are getting close to it. I know that BT, Plusnet and TalkTalk do. In fact to the best of my knowledge, the only ISP who don't are Virgin Media.

Thanks to everyone who replied, I will certainly try all the suggestions in particular the leaving of the modem on 24/7 which to be honest I was just doing as nobody used it during the night I had no idea it could affect your broadband stability to such an extent !!! My ISP is TalkTalk and they have an online broadband meter but I, and many others I have spoken to on their forum, just do not believe the figures they are quoting and i just wanted to have some way to compare especially if they plan to charge me for excess usage. I will let you know, thanks again...

Are you taking into account that upload also counts towards your usage limit? It never used to be this way, but someone at their marketing department seem's to have caught onto that one....

No, i certainly did not know that !!! how sneaky, should be renamed Internet Usage Allowance or something like that if it is both DL and UL that is being measured. Anyway, I got the software to work and just need to get familiar with it - it looks like you can get it to track more than one PC over a time period so that is what i was looking for - I just need to figure out how to do it.... LOL.

Here is program I use, but you would need it on each PC.

Bandwidth monitor, bandwidth speed test, bandwidth and traffic monitoring tool for Windows

NetWorx Online Manual

Has Daily, Weekly and Monthly stats so you can see what is going on.
You can set up your usage quota and at what percentage you want to be alerted.

I'm running Win 7 64bit, My PC is wired and my Laptop is wireless and TBB meter gives me the usage on both, as it's set to cover my Home group network. Been using it for a long time now.
