its easy to use
cant say anything bad about it
It will block the addresses of known IP addresses.
Provides gullible users with the illusion of anonymity.
It does not protect you from the software, music or video firms tooking to sue.
It fools people into thinking they are safe thus exposing them to greater risks.
People like the RIAA employ consultants to track down people spreading copywrited works. There is no evidence they do this from their own location or known IP addesses. If they wish to circumvent this application all they need to is to use a different IP, do it from home, employ a contractor or a 100 other obvious methods. The idea that you can get around their investigations by blocking a few known IP addresses is laughable. Thinking you are protected when you are not is worse than simply not being protected.

Insightful review and quite logical. So if one were still seeking protection, what is your recommendation?
prevent all the access to bad and suspicous sites ...
well , it sometimes block yahoo or google , so u can allow HTTP option , or u can
add them to a permenant allow list ... but u should know Google , Yahoo & Microsoft
are trying to collect information about people all the time ...
it is perfect , has a huge data base , smart program I use it always but u need to be
a little advanced user to used without any problems , I like the portable version too ,
I can use it what ever I go to any place with my other portable applications in my
own flash disk ...
I dont know yet

I selected the following
From the 4 only Goverment updates and the other 3 are disabled due to 'Error contacting URL. Can someone advise?
Please see the above
This thing works and it's great for just about anyone whether your using p2p or not.
It sometimes messes up and its successor PeerBlock, I think, is replacing it.
PeerBlock is the exact same thing but newer. Get that instead.

can it block people on knowing if your downloading movies?with vuze...
It was and still is a great program for older systems like Win98. If it works on your system, it provides a valuable security function. It was a valuable program and PeerBlock wouldn't exist without it.
Was always a bit buggy on XP and, especially, Vista but it was never fully developed for newer systems...
This is outdated and has been superseded by PeerBlock which is built on PeerGaurdian's source code but is much more compatible with newer versions of Windows.
Does what it says.
Doesn't work with Windows 7.
Use PeerBlock if Peer Guardian isn't compatible with your computer.
What's to say? If you need a P2P IP Blocker, than this is about it in terms of being built for just such a use. I'm sure it works great, its easy as pie to setup not a very large program.
The list slowly stop working and render the program pointless and useless.
I downloaded this program with high expectations. A friend had told me about it and that it was a must* if you are on P2P networks alot. I'm not a huge P2P'r, but I do enjoy the assurance of surfing safely. It worked great for a few months. You turn it on and it tries to auto update...and as expected over the last few months of using it, it has stopped updating its lists. Offering little or no protection at all. Maybe its just my computer, maybe its just my copy of the program but as soon as I am done writing this, I'm going to uninstall it and start looking for another.
If it downloaded and worked that WOULD be great
The download link, here on Download.com and the publisher's site are both not working. I added both sites to my trusted list, and still nothing.
