I downloaded Peer Guardian a couple of days ago. I'm still not sure how it works. When I look at the log I enter the IP number to see who it is. On the ones I want to have blocked do I enter the information onto "Add New Range"? I have added some but on the Status Window it says 0 blocked. Am I doing something wrong?

you need to update the server.met from various websites or get a blockip manager. Do a google and you'll be fine on those key words.

Actually, you need to update a file called "guarding.p2p" for PeerGuardian.
I don't know of any current sites that have an updated list (you can probably try google to find one but be sure it's a trusted/reliable source).
If you looking for applications to make your PC more secure, I would recommend an application called Protowall (a discussion thread can be found here: http://techzonez.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8658) and I use another application called The Blocklist Manager to keep it up to date (another discussion thread on that here: http://techzonez.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10332)

Thanks, I'll check it out. So, when I enter the information into the "add new range" box, it's not going to block that particular company? I'm so confused.

When you add an address into the "add new range", it will block that IP address from connecting to your pc.
