Unhappy Program To Measure Download Usage?

I found out not so long ago that my ISP, NTL, has put a 3GB/month download cap on my internet connection.

I can't seem to find any programs that measure how much you have downloaded, so can anyone recommend me any programs, with a resource link, preferably?

DLL or something? Or maybe download accelerater? I'm not too sure... you'd have to find out the links... sorry... I'm at school right now and they have massive filters... I'm sorry man. Maybe when I get home later I'll do it.

You can use NetLimiter or DUMeter.

Don't know about DUMeter, but doesn't netlimiter just show u how fast u download, not how much u have downloaded. Ofcourse u can do some maths if u want to but I really doubt that anyone is willing to do that.

or something like this:

NetMeter
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Network...NetMeter.shtml

I never use it before so don't know how effective it is.

I'm using DU Meter now. Thanks to everyone who replied though.

DU Meter's a really good program that tells me how much i downloaded or uploaded and even does monthly totals to make it easy for me to see how much i can download, so i recommend it to everyone.
