Type: class Win32_error uncaught exception
October 21, 2014 12:46AM
Started my PC up today and ran Peerblock as normal, a few lists updated (see below). About three hours later I got an error message and Peerblock crashed.
Here's what I've done so far:
1. Restarted Peerblock, no effect, same error meassage appeared.
2. Restarted PC and Peerblock, no effect.
3. Uninstalled & re-installed Peerblock, no effect.

Right now Peerblock is crashing right after it checks for list updates. So I searched the forums but wasn't able to find a solution, I'm hoping I missed something nice and obvious.

Error message received:

Build number: 41401140693
File: pb.cpp
Line 247
Type: class Win32_error
Function: MoveFileEx
Error Code: 5
Message: Access is denied.

Lists that had updated today:
DShield: [list.iblocklist.com]
Hijacked: [list.iblocklist.com]
Spyware: Default list
Spyware 2: [list.iblocklist.com]
Web Exploits: [list.iblocklist.com]
Ads: Default list

That's the first place I looked, all it has for my error is a recommendation to search the forum. The search doesn't yield any results about my specific error.

I just wanted to point out, you claimed you had 2 spyware list, the default one and the one on iblocklist, but both lists are the samething. It is possible that these duplicated lists is the issue. You should delete one of the spyware list and see if that fixes your issue.

I tried that, I started Peerblock and while the error message was on screen I opened the program and disabled the second spyware list. The program still crashed, and when I restarted it it still failed to run.

An update:

I got somehow Peerblock working intermittantly without making any changes, sometimes it'll work on startup, sometimes not. About 3/4 of the time if it doesn't work on startup, it'll work if I restart Peerblock after 5-15 minutes.

I also had a new error when I restarted my PC, message is below.

Build Number: 41401140693
File: mainproc.cpp
Line: 397
Type: class path_error
Message: Access is denied.

I looked through ( [forums.peerblock.com] ) but didn't see anything about denied access. Out of curiosity, is it possible something in my anti-virus or firewall might cause these problems? I use Microsoft Security Essentials and Comodo firewall. Peerblock worked fine before with those programs, but *shrug* compatibility comes and goes.

It might be possible either one of those is preventing PeerBlock form working. Try and see if there's a way to "whitelist" PeerBlock in both Comodo's firewall and MSE to see if it'd help. If it will, it would certainly be a valuable contribution to all the other users facing the same problem.

Poked around a bit, whitelisted peerblock.exe, it didn't make any change that I could see. Peerblock has actually been blocking Comodo, so I whitelisted that as well. There's been no change from my last post. Sometimes it works on program start, sometimes not. When it doesn't, it usually works within a few minutes.
