Windows 7 users, do you miss the blue blinking of the small two-monitor icon in the system tray that flashed to show when you there was network activity in Windows Vista? If so, you'll want to download the small utility Network Activity Indicator for Windows 7.

PC Advisor Software Store

Run Network Activity Indicator, and you'll see that familiar old blinking icon. There are benefits beyond seeing a familiar icon; the program tells you at a glance whether you are connected to a network, and also can provide useful information about your network connection.

This nifty utility does more than that, though. In fact, Network Activity Indicator for Windows 7 gives you capabilities that the Vista feature didn't have. Hover your mouse over it and you'll see the number of packets you've sent and received. Right-click it to get network statistics that only a techie could love, such as your active open connections, errors received, minimum timeout, and far more.
