Peerblock not updating
Hosting, as well as the signed driver, is funded by donations from the public.
Future donations are intended to contribute to future signed drivers, hosting and to possibly rent a virtual private server on which the team should be able to build a "real" online-update feature for future releases of Peer Block.
BTW, I've been using Microsoft Security Essentials as my antivirus program for the past couple of days now.
Prior to that I was using Avira but it seemed to be giving me problems so I uninstalled it and installed the Microsoft app.
Because Peer Guardian 2 is Open Source, you can rest assured there are no backdoors or spyware included.
I have exhausted all online resources at this point and thought that I had narrowed it down to the dns.
Peer Guardian 2 is Phoenix Labs' premier IP blocker for Windows.
Peer Guardian 2 integrates support for multiple lists, list editing, automatic updates, and blocking all of IPv4 (TCP, UDP, ICMP, etc), making it the safest and easiest way to protect your privacy on P2P.
Peer Block has multiple features in the latest version of the program.
These include a constantly updating blocklist managed by the home site and a manager that lets you choose which lists to include in the block.
