Good traffic monitor
Am looking for a good freeware traffic monitor for my PC
running win98se with limited resources so the less resource hungry the better
also if any knows of a good reg monitor would be gratefull as well

Freeware, lightweight, and packed full of monitoring features.
edit: I know it doesn't say 98se, but I read the reports and reviews and no one had a problem with it.

edit>> just tried to install it on 98se but it doesn't work - thanks anyways
anyone else got any ideas??

Man, too bad it didn't work. I'll see if I can report it to that site that despite other users opinions, it is not working on other win98 SE machines. I'll keep an eye open, but it may involve more than just a monitoring device since win98 (or xp for that matter) doesn't sniff packets in the way I think you are wanting. No worries

TCPView works fine for me. You can download it from WebAttac.com.

You can use Regmon 6.06 from http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/source/regmon.shtml
Very nice tools can be found there, this one to monitor the registry is under 80 kb.
Or where you looking for a utility to watch certain keys and alert you on a change?

I wasnt sure about starting a new thread for this question, so i'll just quickly ask here -- what exactly is the difference between a traffic moniter and a packetsniffer? I always assumed they were the same thing.
