Windows 7: Bandwidth usage monitor?

Bandwidth usage monitor?

I think I have that right? Our isp has a cap on usage now & I would like to keep an eye on it so as to not go over. In my searching this forum, I saw several posts about NetWorx but those posts were a couple or more years old so am wondering if there's something new being recommended or is it still the one?
Thanks.

If your ISP has a website, you may be able to check there by logging into your account.

I'm using NetWorx and I've been happy with it.

I've been using DU Meter for a long time, even though I don't have any monthly cap issues to worry about.

I just like its upload/download GUI. I've suppressed its reporting and monthly bandwidth monitoring features, though they are certainly present.

Thanks to all 3 of you but after a call to my isp this morning I guess I got excited over nothing, I was reading their info wrong . @dsperber, I did check your link but it looks like it's not a free program & my funds are limited. I might go ahead with NetWorx just for S & G's. Thanx Jeannie for your confirmation.

I used it's trial and it keeps me asking to purchase it But I've to admit it's a pretty decent GUI interface.
