PeerBlock at startup - or not ?

I was wondering if lots of users allow PB to run at startup - or not ? Or do you load it later on ?

It's really up to you.

If your running Vista or Win7, you have to start it up manually due to the way it loads applications which require admin privileges.

Otherwise I recommend running at startup.

I run at startup,

I treat PeerBlock as I do my antivirus, It should be on all the time.
I like the thought of my PC having that extra layer of security from the second it is available to the network.

Negative. You can turn off UAC for one via msconfig > Tools > Disable UAC .

Or if you still want to use UAC you can give PeerBlock Admin access on startup via start++:

[brandontools.com]

I use it to run Task Manager on System Startup with full Admin rights even with UAC enabled:

C:\Windows\system32\hide.exe C:\Users\Will\AppData\Local\Start++\CMDs\sudo.cmd C:\Windows\system32\hide.exe C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe /C start /min taskmgr.exe

You can find hide.exe here: [www.msfn.org]

Also, I highly recommend every windows user to use Startup Delayer: [www.r2.com.au]

This application makes it easy to control what applications run on startup and in what order.

And because you can delay application execution you can easily work around the "icons not loading on startup" bug that has been around since pre Win95.

I know it is possible to turn off UAC but I won't recommend to people that they do it.

If they can turn if off themselves, it's up to them whether to keep it that way.

The issue is with PeerBlock at the moment and it will be fixed at some point.
