Okay, the install was painless, it let me put it where I wanted.

Listen I'll be up front right away about this program. It's Great!

It has the neatest looking graphical interface of all the Internet (or Network) Monitors that I have seen and tested. And I have tried lots of them. The last one I used for years just worked over a dial-up connection, so it became useless when I went to DSL. Lets get this right though this program is just perfect for dial-up connections also. Listen to this, it will keep track of your connect times, which can be really useful if you live outside of North America and you pay for Internet use by connect time. Take a look at this screen shot.

There are a whole bunch of option and alerts available. But right out of the box it works really nice. There are graph options on how the DU Meter looks and acts. There is an alert that you can setup for amount of downloads in a period of time . Which is really nice if you pay more if you go over a limit.

I'm not going to go on and on. Here are my final words, if you are reading this you got here because you might have a need for this kind of program. Well Try It Out! You get 30 days of unencumbered use, you just can't lose and I bet you will love it like I do.
