I have PeerBlock on my computer which starts up automatically but today a window popped up after startup saying something along the lines of "Peerguardian 2 cannot run whilst PeerBlock is running. Please close and restart". I haven't even heard of Peerguardian 2 let alone chosen to download it so I was suspicious about whether it was a virus. Googling it though is giving a bit of a mixed opinion - it seems to be a genuine program but I also came up with lots of results about it being a particularly nasty trojan. I'm inclined to believe the latter in my case as I recently reformatted my computer so it normally runs fairly fast but is being particularly slow to respond today.

Anyone know whether it is a virus and how to safely remove it? I cant find it on my computer anywhere to uninstall (even in control panel programs or task manager).

 

Thanks

Hi Doodlez :)

My name is Aura and I'll be assisting you with your issue. PeerGuardian is a legitimate program, however the development under Windows was dropped some time ago and the developer recommends to use PeerBlock instead, which is the "continuation" of PeerGuardian.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/peerguardian/

Let's see if we can find traces of it on your system. Follow the instructions below please.

You currently have two Antivirus software installed, Ad-Aware and Avira. You should only have one Antivirus installed at all time on a system, since having more than once can create conflict and system instability. Therefore, I suggest you to uninstall one of them and keep the other. Normally, you would uninstall the free one, and keep the one you are paying for. In the case where both of them are free, uninstall the one you don't want to use anymore. For more information about the dangers of running two Antivirus at the same time, I suggest you to read the IMPORTANT NOTE at the bottom of quietman's article below.

Choosing an Anti-Virus Program

Also, please uninstall the programs below.
  • Cloud System Booster - See the warnings below;
  • McAfee Security Scan Plus - Usless;
warning.gifPC Booster/Tune-Up Program Warning!
"PC Booster/Tune Up" programs are part of the worst programs you can install on a system. When it comes to messing up your system (Windows), these are as worst as malware. They are completely worthless and useless to use. The worst is that they'll often take action on your system without you knowing, nor authorizing it, which could lead to your system being altered in a way you don't want it to be or even worst, a "broke" system. Every feature they provide, you can either do it natively under Windows, do it via another standalone executable (which is way easier and safer to use) or they aren't providing something you need. Here's a few examples:
  • Cleaning temporary files: TFC (standalone executable), CCleaner (installed), Cleanmgr.exe (in-built);
  • Managing start-up entries: Autoruns (standalone executable), CCleaner (installed), Task Manager and Registry (in-built);
  • Driver Updater: Not needed, all you need is to go on your manufacturer website so you'll be sure to get the right, official, working drivers for your computer or hardware;
  • Registry Cleaner/Defragger: Completely useless and also dangerous;
  • Disk Defragging: Disk Defrag (in-built), O&O Disk Defrag (installed), Defraggler (installed);
  • Powerful uninstaller: Not needed, only needed when you have to make sure a program is completely uninstalled. Revo Uninstaller have a portable version you can use;
  • "Enhanced" Task Manager: Procexp (standalone executable), Process Hacker (portable or installed);
  • "Active security": Any Antivirus and Antimalware can beat that, easily. These programs aren't made to replace Antivirus or Antimalware products and shouldn't be seen as such;
  • Repair Hard Drive issues: Simple chkdsk /r command under Windows (in-built);
Having such program installing on your system will just bloat it down and you have more chances to have issues by using them than without. These products are advertised as a program that can solve all your issues, remove every malware, speed up your computer performance over 100%, etc. The truth is that there's not a single program that can do that. First of all, these programs aren't made to remove virus and malware, leave this in the hands of Antivirus and Antimalware, period. Secondly, there's so many kind of issues under Windows that there's not a single program that can address them all. If you think that BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) issues can be solved by opening a program and clicking on a "Fix" button, then I'm sorry to tell you but, you're wrong. Also, you cannot boost the performance of a hardware over it's hardware capabilities. Of course you can overclock some components, like your CPU, RAM and GPU, but these aren't done via these programs, but via your BIOS interface. I could recommend you a program for every feature these programs advertise, and also tell you exactly in detail why most of them are completely useless, such as Registry cleaner (dangerous to use), and driver updater (dangerous to use, and also completely useless, it'll not improve your system performance). In the end, buying such programs is the exact same as being scammed (because this is what it is, a pure scam) and using one of these programs will result you in having a system less performant than prior to using it.

Relevant articles if you want to read more about PC Boosters/Optimizers and why they are useless:I see that PeerBlock is installed on your system. Do you use it?

Yes. I have been using PeerBlock for years but have never even heard of PeerGuardian before now, which is why it threw me. Any ideas?

Yes, follow the instructions below, I have an idea of what could be happening.

sUc2qjf.pngAutoruns - Start-up Entries
Follow the instructions below to give me an Autoruns log containing your start-up entries:
  • Download Autoruns.zip from the Sysinternals Suite webpage;
  • Extract the content of the Autoruns.zip folder where you want, then go in the folder, right-click on Autoruns.exe and select Run as Administrator;
  • Accept the EULA on opening, then wait for all the entries to load;
  • Click on File then Save and save the file to a location easily accessible as a .arn (Autoruns) file;
  • Upload the file on Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive and post the download URL for it here;

I don't see anything related to PeerGuardian here. I would try to uninstall PeerBlock and reinstall it. Since PeerBlock is a continuation of PeerGuardian, it's possible that some legacy code related to it was left (with the name PeerGuardian in it) and the service tried to start a second time while it was already running, resulting in the error message. That would be my guess.

Thanks for your help. Weirdly it hasn't done it since so maybe it was just a funny little hiccup.
