Try allowing http if you have that blocked and see if it works.

That's just pointless since PeerBlock itself can bypasses block lists so that it can update itself.

Try checking to make sure the built-in windows firewall is not blocking PeerBlock.
Check with any other firewall/anti-virus software you have installed.

Thanks for reply. I've been using PB for quite some time. This is the first time its ever given me a problem. (ftr - it doesn't download whether http is allowed or not). As an experiment I downloaded a list manually from iblocklist (via browser) and PB seems to load the file fine when its on the desktop. The problem seems to be only related to downloading the file itself.
