    As the topic says i need a software that is better than DUmeter. I have a Triband 590NU connection which means the downloads b\w 12-8am r free.
    Hence i want a software which counts the data transfer b\w this time seperately. I normally shutdown Dumeter at 12am but sometimes i forget due to which even this gets counted.

    so plz recommend any alternative s\w OR anyway by which DUmeter can be automatically shut at 12am and restarted at 8am.

    Add it to the task scheduler, mention to terminate the DUMeter at 12: 00 AM.
    I think it should work.

    You can use Task Scheduler to shut down and start programs at any time you want.

    but it would be better if the programs checks for the time & then only records usage.
    OR a program that counts the usage hourly.
    Wait Bandwidth monitor can do that & then we can add up the usage for hrs we are charged but it will be a manual task.
    still looking for something useful.
    if someone can help pl reply.

    I dont think any software has that feature (i guess capped broadband is popular only in India). Have tried DUmeter, Netlimiter, Netmeter, bandwidth monitor pro but none have it.

    So how to use Task scheduler... never used it. It has options to only start the program but how do i shut it down at 12am and this should happen everyday.
