Does comodo have an animation in the tray so you can visably see incoming and outgoing traffic as it happens?

Sort of, it has little ticks that are supposed to show how much traffic is flowing I think, they're really small and difficult to see though.

I've recently got a Samsung NC10 with o2 mobile broadband and was wondering if there is a utility that will monitor how much of my 3Gb limit I've used? I'm looking for something simple and free that doesn't take up much resources. I can't believe o2 don't supply one.

Sorry if this has been discussed but I couldn't find anything in the search.

Thanks for any help.

Can anyone recommend a decent freeware file-renaming utility to quickly rename multiple files in XP?

It might be a bit over-complex though, since it can do EVERYTHING

Sysinternals Desktops is brilliant, if you've used Linux you'll already be familiar with the concept of virtual desktops. I have the F1 - F4 bound to each desktop, so it's dead easy to flick between my web desktop, word processor, email etc. Keeps everything a lot neater Been totally reliable for me too, no unexpected behaviour or unrealiability and it uses virtually no resources (944K for me).

are there any alternative PDF readers out there? Preferably ones that keep bloatware to a minimum? Thanks.

Yup I use that and even though I don't come across many sites that will not work correctly in Firefox it is always handy to have it at the ready.
