I am new to a lot of the security aspects of my PC and I am having some problems understanding exactly how the list are used with other software to help protect me. I have honestly tried to research this but at this point I think I may just be overwhelmed and over thinking this. Any basic break down of how the list at I-Blocklist work would be great. Thanks for your time.

I have never used it and don't believe many of our members have either. I did some checking for you but was unable to find any documentation. If no one replies try asking at the I-Blocklist forum.
