Peer guardian works only with XP and not properly with vista. Peer guardian prevents RIAA and MPAA (Recording industry association of america and Motion picture association of america; These are the people who tried to shut down the pirate bay some years ago),

Peer guardian helps block anti-p2p organizations, spyware, adware, other nasty ip addresses and other snoops from accessing your torrent client.

Peer guardian is not a firewall. It does not /can not prevent mal-ware from entering your PC. It only prevents nasty IPs from connecting to your torrent client.

Peer guardian uses a file list of all these banned IPs.

You can directly ban these Ips from utorrent itself without using additional software.

Here's how:

You could download ipfilter.dat (a banned IP list) from

http://blocklistpro.com/download-center/ip-filters/ [nofollow]

or

http://sourceforge.net/projects/ed2k-ipfilterx/ [nofollow]

A tutorial on how to use the ipfilter.dat with utorrent:

1. Download an appropriate IP blocklist. The file will be saved in .gz format, therefore you will have to unzip it. The result is a file called “ipfilter.dat”, that is the IP blocklist.


2. Copy/paste the ipfilter.dat file into your %appdata%\utorrent folder. This folder looks like “C:\Documents and Settings\<your Windows username>\Application Data\uTorrent”.


3. Start uTorrent, go into Options -> Preferences -> Advanced, set the ipfilter.enable option to True and hit Apply/OK.
If you have successfully executed the above steps, then on the Logger tab of uTorrent, you should see something like “Loaded ipfilter.dat (xxxx entries). If you see there “0 entries”, then something went wrong.


You can reload the list without restarting uTorrent, by simply setting the ipfilder.enable option to False/OK and then True/OK.
