    For your exports.p2p file here is how to fix it. First lets delete the exports.p2p.txt you have now. After that is done open Notepad, don't bother typing anything just hit "Save As". Navigate to C:\Program Files\PeerGuardian2\lists this is were the file will be saved. But DO NOT hit Save yet! In the Save As window you have two "options" File Name and Save as Type. Change the Save as Type from "Text Documents (*.txt)' to All Files. And then for File Name save the file as exports.p2p and everything should be squared away now.

    Just if anyone should view this thread Peer Guardian 2 as you may or may not know is pretty much a defunct piece of software. Peer Block is compatible with 64 bit OS'es and Windows 7 which I can confirm. I would highly recommend that even if Peer Guardian 2 works for you currently that you switch to Peer Block.

    Per the Peer Block website:

    yeah, I had posted about peer block in a bunch of other threads in here.

    Like I said, peer guardian is no longer supported, and peer block is the way to go.

    Uninstall Peer Guardian. Reboot and install Peer Block, because as stated PG2 isn't being developed anymore and Peer Block is the future.

    It's using cached files, try clearing C:\Program Files\Bluetack\Blocklist Manager\Cache\*.* and trying again.

    Hello all-Speaking of cache, can I delete/clean the cache from PG2, or is it only if I use Bluetack?Also, the linked article below mentions many other lists I would like to use/find, any opinions on their value/where to find them?Thanks.

    hey creaky, i found the cache file in the location you mentioned and it was empty (in blocklist manager) ao nothing to delete... i dont know what to do.. when I went to the main site of bluetooth (or whatever the name was) they seem to be gone.. as there is a message there that says the future home of bluetooth... anyway.. Im not sure what to do now and the thread seems to be getting away from my problem... appreciate any insight you got

    Re the cached files, even if empty just delete them. Peerblock, as suggested, seems to be a good replacement for Peer Guardian, but bear in mind the supposed protection given by such progams is only as good as the IP lists underneath them.

    I don't see anything in that "log" file that would indicate a error.
