I got a message to download to the new 126.96.36.199 Status Meter. I downloaded the file and tried to update.After the update i had an empty Program with no comments, usage graphs, only a circle in the tray with the % of allotted usage left. I uninstalled the old and the new program and downloaded the new file again. Same result. Uninstalled. All together i downloaded the new program from the dashboard 2 times, same result. I called the tech support. They made me uninstall and download 2 more times. No results, now i should wait 24 hours............ All i did loose a lot of download time that Hughes is most likely will not reimburse me for. I went back and reinstalled the old version that bi had saved and it still works fine. I bet you nobody will call with a resolution to my problem. just the way nobody ever solved my problem a year ago that i can still not order the virus protection from zone alarm per month trough Hughes.
Thanks for posting. At this point, after uninstalling and reinstalling multiple times directly from the Dashboard, I'm unsure what could be the cause. Have there been any changes to your computer?
By chance do you have another machine/laptop on which you can test to see whether this persists? I downloaded the new Status Meter version just last week on our test machine and it works fine. I'm thinking something on that machine isn't playing nicely with the Status Meter.
If you need a quick way to check your usage an alternative would be to make your System Control Center (SCC) your browser's homepage, or at least bookmark it for easy access. The SCC is at 192.168.0.1 and loads quickly, as it is hosted on your modem.
Then if you need to purchase tokens, you may do so from the Dashboard.
I do apologize I did not find a resolution to your antivirus concerns from before; I've escalated but to no avail. There are free alternatives which work perfectly fine; I've personally used Avast for years and currently use Panda on my home PC. Here's a list of current recommended free antivirus programs: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2388652,00.asp
I've also sent you some free tokens for your Status Meter installation attempts, so you may receive an e-mailed order confirmation for those complimentary tokens.
