My System


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 My computer would seem like it is starting up (fans turning and lights blinking) but my computer screen doesn't receive any signal. When the screen display comes back, a Windows Error Recovery menu would show up. Any form of help will be appreciated. :smile: Thank you.
