You probably have your buffer size set to 1mb (by default).  If you go to the capture menu, click on buffer size, the select the size.  I tried it at 1mb on my network and it was at 100% utilized with huge packet losses.  I set it to 200mb and I was at 1% with zero packet loss.  Those settings must be just a measurement threshold setting or something.

Is there a point to changing the buffer size, i change it then next time i log onto the server its back to 1.  Will this %Buffer when increased even effect my network????

No, it won't affect your network.  I have the same puzzled response also.  I don't know what the point is.  All this is changing is how the monitor analyzes the network.  The actual network performance is going to be the same no matter how the monitor is configured.  It's just a monitor.  I'm sure there's some application to it but whatever it's beyond my experience.
