Limit amount a user can download?

Is there any way I can use ISA server, or any other tool for that matter, to limit the amount that a user can download? Not the size of an individual file, but total downloads in the course of a day. We have a policy of allowing people to surf the web for personal purposes on their own time, and most people are sensible about it, but I've just found someone has downloaded 40MB from various football sites. I'd like to be able to cut him off at 5MB.

We're using ISA Server 2000 on Windows 2000 Small Business Server.

Thanks in advance
