Literally useless placeboware. Do not think that because you have this running it'll stop you recieving letters, because it won't.

The P2P blocking list is only for the paranoid. It filters the computers of companies against p2p activities, which is pretty much every single company which has ever made copyrighted content. In other words, Peerblock crippled my browsing. And I only tried it for 5 minutes.

This is the most welcome application of 2009 in my book. It's been literally years since there's been an update to Peer Guardian. I'm excited to know someone decided to continue it and release it to the masses. It's so far run stable on my Windows 7 PC, and is doing an excellent job at blocking the IPs in its list.
