NAD (Network activity Diagram)

XP Bug?
NAD is a great program. It works well on Windows 9x/ME. On XP however when I open the Diagram Properties and then close it it always blows up. Is this a known bug? Is Nad XP compatible? I tried running it under both Win 98 and 95 compatibility mode, and there was no difference. I`m using a very current XP Home configuration.

Enhancement Request
Some of us visual folks can get all the information that we need just from the graph in the window and don`t need or want the numeric statistics. Could an option be added to "Hide numeric statistics" so that one could make the window smaller to maximize precious screen real estate? Also it would be nice to have an option to remove the title bar from the window for the smae reasons.
There is another freeware program called ModemGraph (dialup only) that does this.

This program is worth a look it has some very nice features.

Thanks for your excellent program and in advance for your assistance.

It seems to be a bug. We will fix it in the next release of NAD.

Yes, we work on adding some new types of diagrams to the program. You will be able to use the window graph with only the diagram picture, or, otherwise, the window with the numberic statistics only.
