i'm a home office user and i've got a problem with road runner who's putting a cap on my downloads to 15Gb per month, that's 500mbs a day spread out over several users. if i go over it they're gonna charge me $5 a Gb or my other choice is increase to their $100 a month plan. when i signed up for their service they were alluding to unlimited use. i can't really increase to a $100 a month plan for budget reasons and there are no other local broad band services. so i need to know if there is some sort of software solution i can track my downloads with on a per month basis other than calling in to their office like they suggested or setting up some sort of server to pass the connection through.

Do you have several users on a single computer, or several computers?

As a side note, if you are going over 15GB in a month you must be downloading quite a bit, make sure you have a good Antivirus software, and you should have a spyware program like <A HREF="http://www.lavasoft.nu" target="_new">Ad-Aware</A> or Spybot.

Programs like Imesh and Kazaa contain spyware, but you can get imesh lite and kazaa lite which don't have spyware. And all the file sharing programs are targets for viruses.
