PeerBlock will not Auto Start with Windows 7
May 12, 2016 01:07AM
I did some searches and I see other people are having this problem also, but cannot find a solution. I tried adding to the Windows auto start, I even tried making a task scheduler rule -- nothing works.

Any other ideas? I've been using this app and the one before it since inception. I am so used to it auto starting sometimes I forget to manually start.

Thanks

I made an auto start in taskmanager for windows 10. And it works every time. I'm not sure about problem you are having in win7.

I tried again to set up in Task Scheduler. This time it starts, but it doesn't show up in the tray or in the Task Manager processes -- I cannot access it, but it is running.

The built in auto start feature does not work with the Peerblock program, but it does work with the Task Scheduler.
I just reinstalled Windows 7 and for the past 1/2 hour I can not find the instructions to auto start Peerblock. There should be an easier way to find it, instead of reading all the posts that it doesn't work. It does work but good luck in finding it here.

I finally located the original settings for the autostart of Peerblock for Vista/Win 7. The original link on Peerblock was removed and is being redirected to the [forums.peerblock.com] page. And it still works on my Windows 7.

These are the initial original files for autostart. There are others but I am limited to post them at this time.
The admin here can consolidate all the files to provide a full view of the original page.
