When I was your age, there used to be a thing called "unlimited bandwidth", and it was magical! You could surf the web, download to your heart's content, and do everything and anything without worrying about getting charged extra. Those days, sadly, are at an end! Today, if you are under the yoke of a bandwidth cap, it's more important than ever to watch your usage -- that's why you need Bandwidth Usage Monitor!

Bandwidth Usage Monitor, the subject of today's discounted software promotion, lets you track the bandwidth usage of your broadband internet connection, both download and upload, plus the speed of your connection. You can even track consumption in real-time! So, if you're the only one in the house and you're not downloading, yet there's massive bandwidth usage going on, you've got a digital interloper!

You'll be amazed when Bandwidth Usage Monitor lets you see, at a glance, your data usage on a daily, monthly, and yearly basis. A simple and intuitive interface makes it extraordinarily easy!

Colin Pritchard Can one determine which programs are actively using the internet and what their usage is?

John H For 5 bucks I was going to purchase this right away instead of waiting for the deal. I have at least 2 to 3 computers on at the same time.

Please clarify the following two contradictory statements from the Policy listing:

"Bandwidth Usage Monitor is licensed per computer, so if you want to install Bandwidth Usage Monitor on multiple computers you will have to purchase multiple licenses."

"Bandwidth Usage Monitor may be used at the same time on multiple computers."

Thanks JTH

Basil Seal Is it possible to see which programs are using the internet in real time?

Gaurav Dhup Hi Colin and Basil.. The program does not display or identify which programs are accessing the internet. It just calculates and displays the bandwidth consumed.

Gaurav Dhup Hi John,

Thanks a lot for showing interest in purchasing this program. You may purchase a single copy and install it on multiple systems that you own.

However, I would like to clarify that each computer will maintain it's own bandwidth usage and there will not be any consolidated report from multiple PCs

Stephane M Hi, I am having the same issue as Genie au Travail, I cannot get it properly installed. The application does not launch after installation.

Gaurav Dhup To all those who are getting an error during installation especially on systems with Win XP.

It is because the system does not have the requisite Microsoft .Net framework installed on it. The installer attempts to download it as a prerequisite, but somehow fails.

To solve this problem, you may download and install the framework separately from the following link

http://download.microsoft...etfx35.exe

After installation of the framework, the software will install just fine.

The runtime is not included in the installer as it would bulge the installer size to a considerable size, which is unnecessary as the runtime is generally pre installed on most systems.

Gaurav Dhup Hi Genie,

This problem is linked to a corrupted user profile on the system..
Please refer to the solutions on the following Microsoft forum posts

http://social.msdn.micros...0866efb168

http://stackoverflow.com/...cted-range

However, I have taken your point.. will switch over to the classic installer in near future.

Gaurav Dhup Noggin, The main selling point of this software is its simplicity an ease of use!

No confusing settings, no extra unnecessary information to confuse the user. If one just wants to know the bandwidth consumption, that is what this software will give. No more No less!

Also the screen shots, how do i get the first screen shot to display, I can see the other three, just not the first one

G W Hi Gaurav Dhup, yes it was my error, got it worked out :)

Re my other question, it appears that this monitors local traffic also, I needed it to record outgoing and inbound traffic from the Internet only (outside of the local area).

Is this possible, or maybe you can add this feature to a future update.

If you're having install issues please contact the vendor via their dedicated support channels.

This promotion is technically expired -- I wouldn't expect a response from the vendor here.
