Q: I have a particular problem. At the present time I find I go over my monthly 2G allowance and so incur an extra charge. I use Vodafone Wireless using a Vodem. So I need find ways of keeping to my 2G limit. One way would be to somehow analyse on a daily basis exactly how much I have used.
Can anyone let me know of any software (preferably free) running on Windows 7 starter that would do this please? I mainly use Firefox as a browser, and sometimes Google Chrome, Safari and Opera and occasionally (where I have to) Internet Explorer. Such detail as: name of website including its URL, size of pages downloaded including any files (PDF, DOC and any programs), date of browsing site, time spent on site, would be the type of data I need.
I have found that the free program Super Winspy will do some of what I need. However, it seems as though it only works with Internet Explorer and I need similar data using Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera. Do you know of a similar free program to do this? Also I still need a way of determining how much data was downloaded from these web sites to give me the complete picture. Any further help you can give me would be most appreciated.
A: There are several bandwidth monitor tools around which should do all or part of what you want, though you may have to pay to get all of the features you require. Try Bandwidth Monitor Lite there’s also a pro version available with more features. There’s also Bandwidth Monitor which isn’t free but you can download a trial to see how it works.
