Presumably you have downloaded the utility as a complete file? If so then invariably it's a simple matter of clicking on the file (double-click perhaps) and the setup/installation will start?

When it starts to install... watch carefully for any pre-checked boxes and uncheck them; other than the actual one for the utility itself. That way you will avoid installing all manner of "stuff" you neither need nor want' - much of it being a true PIA to eradicate.

✔ Best Answer
This is the procedure:
Download and Save the file somewhere. It is called "Network_Meter.zip" which is a compressed file. Double click it and you will see it contains within it a file named "Network_Meter_V9.6.gadget". Copy or drag that file from to some other place then double click it to do the install.

However, gadgets are now deprecated by Microsoft as a security risk so it is unlikely to install on Win 10. There is a way to restore gadgets AT YOUR OWN RISK. See here:

After that the previously copied file should install.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
