Network Column in Windows Task Manager Not Working

For our software to display bandwidth correctly, Windows NDU (Windows Network Data Usage Monitoring Driver) ends up getting stopped/disabled. This is because both services work by examining packets, and both doing so at the same time can cause conflicts.

If you force NDU to run while Killer Control Center or Killer Network Manager is installed, those two programs may not display bandwidth correctly.

If you would like to re-activate the Windows NDU to test for yourself, open a Command Prompt and enter the following:

sc config ndu start=auto

…and press Enter.

After you enter that command, reboot your Computer.

NDU should now be set to start automatically and the Task Manager Processes tab should show traffic in the Network column, but the Killer Control Center or Killer Network Manager might not work properly.

To disable it, enter the following into a Command Prompt:

sc config ndu start=disabled

…and press Enter.

After you enter that command, reboot your Computer.
