[INFO] How to Run PeerBlock in a Standard Account.

You need: RunasSpc program from [www.softpedia.com]

1. Log into Administrator account.

2. Extract/unzip runasspcen and move only the unzipped RunasSpc folder to C:\Program Files (x86).
NOTE! RunasSpc folder inside runasspcen folder.

3. Go to PeerBlock folder and right-click on peerblock.exe, go to Properties > Compatibility tab > check 'Run this program as an administrator'.

4. Run runasspcadmin.exe. (see example1.png)
In Path\Application field locate Peerblock.exe.
Insert your Administrator Username and Password.
Click 'Save Cryptfile' button.
Click 'Test Cryptfile' to test if the program is launched.
Exit runasspcadmin.

5. Run Windows Task Scheduler. (see example2.png)
Click 'Create Task'.
Give the task an name.
Click 'Change User or Group' and specify the name of the standard account.
Check 'Run with highest privileges'.
Change Configure for 'Windows 7, Windows Server 2008' (because I run Windows 7)

Click the 'Triggers' tab. (see example3.png)
Create a new trigger that runs 'At log on' for the standard account to use.

On the 'Actions' tab. (see example4.png)
Create a new action to 'Start a program'.
In Program/script box type "C:\Program Files (x86)\runasspc\runasspc.exe"
In Add arguments box type /cryptfile:"C:\Program Files (x86)\runasspc\crypt.spc" /quiet

On the 'Conditions' tab. (see example5.png)
Uncheck 'Start the task only if the computer is on AC power'. Click 'OK'.

Restart PC and don't forget to say THANK YOU!

Great post.  Thanks, hangouts!

Note that the PeerBlock team itself hasn't been testing against this RunasSpc tool - and I am not entirely sure how it's operating under the covers - so things may break in strange and interesting ways.  If this happens to you, let us know and we'll look into it.

Stickying this for now, since it is a solution that may help many people.

Thanks hangouts. Finally got it to work. Pinged 3.0.0.0 and she seems to be working as should be.
