Recommendations for Free Bandwidth Monitoring Software with Alarm

Hi
I'm looking for...
Recommendations for Free Bandwidth Monitoring Software with an Alarm.
Now and again some webpage decides to download GBs of data without my knowledge.
Recently I've gone from around 200MBs/day to 2GBs/day.
First I knew was when I received the email from plusnet saying I've nearly used up all my allowance for the month.
So what I'm looking for is free bandwidth monitoring software which will sound an alarm if I use more than so many MBs in a set period of time.
EG more than 50MB in 30 minutes.  Or what ever I want to set it to.
That's all I need it to do.  Nothing else clever - just sound an alarm when a lot of data is being downloaded in a short time period.
(Ideally with an on/off button so it doesn't sound an alarm when I'm updating my browser, etc).
Any recommendations most welcome!    Smiley
I don't want to pick one at random from google in case it has spyware, etc embedded.
Thanks
Andy
