SInce you are using i for the first time the password column should be left blank...

And if you installed bandwidth manager on the computer you are trying to log on thn the username should be get "LOCALHOST"

Reboot your computer first before use BWM, or start service of BWM in services.msc

Check if there is BWMSVC.LOG located in the installation directory and post its content here.

If you are using a windows in portuguese,
install BW on a different directory, not on
"arquivos de programas" or "Program files"

I don't have this problem... I installed bwm on program files and arquivos de programas and BWM works without problems...
