The current replacement of PeerGuardian 2 (any version).

The Current Developers Team is constantly working on the PeerBlock to make it Compatible and Applicable to Windows Vista and Windows 7 (both x86 and x64 = 32 bit and 64 bit modes).

Their latest Priority is to get the Signed Driver Certification.

Want a Signed Driver?
Yeah, you know you want it... A signed driver... So you don't need to jump through any of the hoops necessary to get unsigned drivers (like what PeerBlock - and PeerGuardian 2 before it - require to run) to load under recent versions of Windows.
PeerBlock HOME for all the Info you need.

PeerBlock is a new version (aka a \"fork\") of the popular Peer Guardian 2 software. It blocks \"known bad\" computers from accessing yours, for example governments, corporate entities, and those flagged for anti-p2p activities. Peer Block maintains the functionality of the original Peer Guardian 2 program, but includes fixes for various issues that remain unaddressed in the latest (~2 year old) version of PG2.

PeerBlock supports Windows XP, Vista, and Win7 - and maybe Windows 2000 too, though nobody's been testing that - in both 32- and 64-bit flavors.

Many thanks to the original developers of Peer Guardian! You've created a great piece of software, one that served us all well for many years. Hopefully at some point we'll be able to merge the changes coming to Peer Block back into PG2/PG3, but for now I'll be happy just with a piece of software that works well on my new Windows 7 64-bit machine.

Want a Signed Driver?
It's going to cost around $430+ to purchase a \"code-signing certificate\" that will let us generate a signed driver (including the cost of registering a company in order to be \"allowed\" to purchase one). Do you hate the fact that you hafta hit F8 every time you boot your machine just to get the filter-driver to load? ...or disable UAC and \"test-sign\" the driver? ...or shake a dead chicken while hopping on one foot and turning in a circle while chanting Kabbalistic verses? Well, then, why don't you help out and click this little button:

Your donation will be securely processed by PayPal, and will initially be used to get us a signed-driver - that is Priority #1. We're currently up to $270.32 in our signed driver fund: over 60% of the way there!

Read more about it on the PeerBlock Development Blog, including why it appears as though we need to register a company. From that page you can also donate through if you'd rather.
