    @pea

    Can you actually update your peer guardian lists when you open the program? Mine would not after a reinstall of several times over the past months. I finally gave up and switched to peerblock with no complications. Just curious?

    I wrote this guide a long time back and PeerGuardian 2 was still a reliable program that was updated. It stopped working for me and I switched to PeerBlock and never looked back.

    I'm guessing that gle8871 might be trying to download the lists whilst Peer Guardian is running. Obviously it's better to disable or better still close down PG2 while trying to update Block List Manager.
    I'm still happily using PG2 along with the lists provided by BLM as they still work for me.

    creaky is right it is always best to close down PG2 when updating its lists.

    guys guys guys...... i keep getting the wrong info here... please read through the thread.... my problem is not with peer block... it is with blocklist manager!!!!! I try to download the lists for peer block with it but it shows me no sources to select (see #2 in tutorial)... I repeat I am not having issues with peer block... it is blocklist manager... and that was why i asked if maybe blocklist manager was compatible with win 7 not peerblock...

    seriously guys, I do real appreciate you all trying to help...
    I m just looking for the right answer here

    Its a false positive. Basically it sees the program connecting to a server to download a update of some sort which is how viruses,trojans,etc. work and it thinks the program is malicious. Nothing to worry about, your A/V is simply a bit over zealous.

    I agree about the false positive.

    As to BLM,i updated mine again this morning, no problems at all (i use XP).

    Are you stupid? It was the newest version of Blocklist Manager, so what the update do you mean? Think at first, and don't write bullshits, ok? For all the *bleep* lamers thanks in advance.
    BTW. alarm of infencion was before installing and working of the Blocklist Manager, just during download!

    outrance - How about you keep the foul language and insults off our forums...
    Just because you're unable to get a simple program working doesn't mean all our viewers have to read that..

    I've tested download of Blocklist Manager using NOD32, Kaspersky and Norton antyvirus software, and in all cases was the same alarm: file is infected. So, as you can see, I can't be responsible for your eventual mental limitation.
    BTW Are you using any antivirus at all?

    On Windows machines yes i do, i use AVG, and i don't get false positives with any of my downloads but i do know that certain antivirus programs do trigger false positives for certain downloads.
    As to my alleged 'mental limitation', you can figure out what that is supposed to mean while you take a couple days vacation off the site due to extreme ignorance and inability to fit in with us grownups. Thanks for ruining what had been a very useful and constructive thread.

    If your running NOD32, Kaspersky, and Norton Antivirus simultaneously your going to have system stability problems as the "core"/"kernel"/"driver" or whatever each company calls their A/V engine will conflict with the engine from the other 2 companies. I recommend choosing 1 A/V and uninstalling the rest. If you want to be able to scan a file with multiple antiviruses, use the website VirusTotal. You upload a file and it scans it using 30+ antivirus programs. It can be quite handy.

    Website LifeHacker also did a article on a VirusTotal app that adds a option to upload a file to VirusTotal to your right click menu.

    They, LifeHacker, also did a little article you would benefit from reading called Basic Etiquette for Email Lists and Forums.
