I looked up a lot of these IPs and they look like telecoms, schools and some corporate IPs (part of my block lists).

An app or apps are connecting to those addresses. They don't seem malicious. Could be your anti-virus, a program update, Instant Messaging progam, etc.

Check when the blocks occur and try close some apps in the system tray. You could try running TCPView but it would require you disabling PeerBlock to see the outbound connection being made to those IP Address.

Port 1935 is used by Adobe. Probably the updater service for Adobe Reader or Flash Player. That can be disabled in Edit, Preferences, Updater.

This business is binary. You're either a one or a zero.
