Peer guardian


Standard Member
i have downloaded peer guardian, and on all the lists it updates "error contacting url" appears. government updates, p2p it says "none available" and the other such as spyware just says "error contacting url".
why is this? and am i still protected against being caught downloading? many thanksn :)

That's common.
Just close it and try again a couple of times.

am i still protected against being caught downloading?
Pretty much.
If you think it's a safe method of protecting yourself.

I would imagine that the companies concerned would soon get around this method of IP blocking, so the whole thing is a waste of time, imo.

Hi shona569, :)

If you still have problems with 'Peerguardian', you could try 'Peerblock' instead.

It is based on 'Peerguardian' code as explained here, but is more consistent in updating and less prone to crashes in my experience. :thumbsup:
