i want to use peerblock because I DL from utorrent and want to be a little safer but I am afraid it will mess up my internet experience or my antivirus.. I have norton internet security 2011 cuz it came with the Pc but plan to switch to a free AV in 37 days after trial is done.. i have been reading posts on the peerblock website and just kinda scared me.. i dont want it to mess up anything i personally cant fix..Im somewhat capable of troubleshooting but would just like some feedback on suggestions on it and if it really is that easy to use.. thanks guys

PeerBlock is easy to use. We have a user guide that explains various things - [www.peerblock.com]

We also have a FAQ - [www.peerblock.com]

We also have some troubleshooting threads - [forums.peerblock.com] and [forums.peerblock.com]


PeerBlock might mess with your internet experience, but you can always Allow HTTP when surfing the web, and Block HTTP when not surfing the web. I do not know of anyway that PeerBlock can interfere with your anti-virus.

I've never had a conflict with peerblock and my a/v. It works like a charm. Plus when using the most trusted IP blocker there is you can feel a lot safer downloading torrents.
ps: don't go with a freebe a/v when you switch over (I'd do it now) but @ pirate bay you can get AVG pro licensed till 2018 but use peerblock so china doesn't know what your doing...lol
pps: you mean you use utorrent as your client.

Heya guys.

Not to burst your bubbles or anything, but the way commercial antivirus product work these days, your AV has to connect to the internet to download the latest virus definition from the product's own server. The server always should have some sort of license/key check before they allow the download. If by some luck they do allow you to download the latest virus definition, ask yourself are they capable of protecting your machine from virus threats.

Anyway, if you're using Vista or 7, I recommend Microsoft Security Essentials. It is free, as long as you don't become a big money company (license is free for small businesses and below users/machines).

Also a note, we do not condone breaking the law of your current country.

Not sure if I trust this software.I use it to block when I'm using the pirate bay.While the program was up and running,I downloaded the movie rio.Today I got an email from Verizon about copyright violations.I thought this program was to stop that?!?
