  1. Hi,

    I have XP SP3 installed but for all XP I found in the network activity Packets whereas Vista I found bytes. I would like to know what the Packets stand for, MB, KB, B or even another thing this is very important as I have an limited internet connection(transfer) of 5Gb per month and if I go though my speed is completely reduce.

    Thanks in advance for any help...

    It is usually handled the same way VISTA does... in bytes. They should be identifiable with a little work. Did you ever get your memory issue worked out. 1 MB for VISTA is definitely not enough for efficient packet handling. For WXP it is barely enough.

    Ok...

    I don't understand it well but for me it does not seem to be in bytes...

    Yes it's all clear now :)
    The pic helps explain that it's nearly unexplainable to the average user
    Solved !
