Due to the huge amount of bandwidth they're providing to our users, IBlockList.com has started limiting free users to updating once per week only. After you've hit this limit, subsequent attempts to update your lists will result in PeerBlock getting "Error contacting URL: 429" errors. Please read this post on our main page for more details, and how you can get an IBlockList subscription to update more frequently.

We are working with IBlockList to come up with a better way for them to implement this update-limiting, such that PeerBlock doesn't receive these errors. We hope to have this up-and-running soon.

Sorry for the confusion this is causing,

I decided to uninstall peerblock and re-install with the beta version, now I can't update at all. Now the program is just sitting there saying '4 failed updating, 4 disabled and it's not blocking anything.

I should have kept it the way it was at least it was working.
the 429 error was not the problem its that its disabled all my list even the 4 basic lists

As per my comments on this thread, this problem should go away if you switch versions again or if you email your IP address to the I-Blocklist team.

Sorry for the problems,
