    "Imaginary protection for the uneducated user"

    June 11, 2010  |   By MobileTechie

    Version: PeerGuardian (Windows 98/Me) 2.0 beta 6b

    Pros

    It will block the addresses of known IP addresses.
    Provides gullible users with the illusion of anonymity.

    Cons

    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.

    Summary

    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.

    "replace with PeerBlock!"

    January 12, 2010  |   By SparkyFlary

    Version: PeerGuardian (Windows 98/Me) 2.0 beta 6b

    Pros

    This thing works and it's great for just about anyone whether your using p2p or not.

    Cons

    It sometimes messes up and its successor PeerBlock, I think, is replacing it.

    Summary

    PeerBlock is the exact same thing but newer. Get that instead.

    Updated on Jan 12, 2010

    It works for p2p and non p2p users.

    "Outdated Abandonware"

    January 11, 2010  |   By jrunri

    Version: PeerGuardian (Windows 98/Me) 2.0 beta 6b

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    Was always a bit buggy on XP and, especially, Vista but it was never fully developed for newer systems...

    Summary

    This is outdated and has been superseded by PeerBlock which is built on PeerGaurdian's source code but is much more compatible with newer versions of Windows.

    "Protects P2P activity"

    January 4, 2010  |   By ultimatejackofblades

    Version: PeerGuardian (Windows 98/Me) 2.0 beta 6b

    Pros

    Does what it says.

    Cons

    Doesn't work with Windows 7.

    Summary

    Use PeerBlock if Peer Guardian isn't compatible with your computer.

    "Good, but really too buggy."

    December 8, 2009  |   By rpangle

    Version: PeerGuardian (Windows 98/Me) 2.0 beta 6b

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    The list slowly stop working and render the program pointless and useless.

    Summary

    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.

    "Download Link Down"

    November 8, 2009  |   By kryspie

    Version: PeerGuardian (Windows 98/Me) 2.0 beta 6b

    Pros

    If it downloaded and worked that WOULD be great

    Cons

    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.
