This is not a replacement for scanning programs such as anti virus/spyware/malware/adaware

Ive used this setup in addition to my security programs and havent had a problem since

First big step is PeerBlock
PeerBlock ? Peerblock Site

Always go for the stable release

I recommend a defrag and ccleaner run before install. as with any other program installation, return your system to stock clocks or 24/7 stable overclocks.


Peerblock comes with several lists that already work quite well.
P2P, Spyware, Advertising, and Education are their default lists

however, these lists are not updated in realtime, and some have fallen from the usefull ranks, due to assholes and spammer fags getting sm,arter, anti-piracy groups using more and more connections and tricks ot bypass blocking programs


iblocklist.com


Here is the extra lists I use. so far, I have NOT edited any of them. they are all block lists

LIST...............ADDRESS
level2.................http://list.iblocklist.com/?list=bt_level2
level3.................http://list.iblocklist.com/?list=bt_level3
bad peers............http://list.iblocklist.com/?list=bt_templist
primary threats.....http://list.iblocklist.com/?list=ijfqtofzixtwayqovmxn
ipFilterX..............http://list.iblocklist.com/?list=nxs23_ipfilterx
DROP *...............http://list.iblocklist.com/?list=sh_drop
hijacked ip's**.....http://list.iblocklist.com/?list=tbnuqfclfkemqivekikv
Spider***...........http://list.iblocklist.com/?list=spiderNOT VALID TEMPORARILY as of 2/21/10

*= Dont Route Or Peer,

**=these are IPs that have been compromised. Once trusted, but now being used by spammers, hackers, or anti-piracy

***=Large field of IPs. if you get connections blocked that you need, I would edit this list before simply removing it




If you guys need more information or help setting this up, PM me or respond here


I posted this thread in hopes that this can someday attain general knowledge. damn anti-piracy, spammers, advertising, all that stuff can be hit hard or removed from ever being seen on the computer. not only is this a security thing, but it can be advantageous as well, for example, removing the need for plugins on programs. an example is the adblock-plus plugin for firefox. depending on the operating system, FF with that plugin is a memory hog.


I will try to edit this as necessary, and if anyone wants to add to this, you are more then welcome


I take no credit for the creation of these programs or the hard work behind the creation of the proper lists. All the lists I provided are easy to add in peer block by simply clicking the list manager on the left side of the peerblock window when you have it up.

These lists have been tested and editted for general public use and work great

huh? you recommend a defrag before installing any program?

i'd say "defrag c: -a" would be my guide if i need a defrag or not.

I recommend a defrag before installing because there is always a few spaces here and there, the new files become fragmented by default, and you have to run defrag after anyways

do it before an install : A) makes the install potentially faster B) the program starts faster and C) USUALLY doesnt require a defrag afterwards unless its doing a lot of cleanup after install

windows vista and windows 7 all have auto defrag built in.
All you a really doing is wasting time doing a defrag before installing a program.

and in my tweaks I turn off a lot of automatic tasks and such, the defrag being one of them

why are you posting this in the thread? PM me if you have to keep talking about defragging

my defrags take 2-3 minutes

IF you actually take care of your computer

regular defrags keep your harddrive alive.

windows comes packed with a defragmentor
if you have SSD's, never use
but if you have a normal spindle drive you need to do it at the very elast once a month


I use defraggler.

defraggler.com

You can also manually block ports from windows itself.

None the less, a decent find you have here, I may install it here today.

sometimes ports isnt enoguh.

Unless you know to change your browser port from 80 and then block port 80, you are still vulnerable


my method is I use all these lists, and block HTTP, then slowly add what I think are safe addresses.


If you guys want that short list, it UN blocks addresses for gmail, facebook, superhonda, toyotanation, mininova,, h33t, btjunkie, ebay, mwt, auroroa club of NA, overclock, photobucket, and weather

And they suck.
true, if they were built well like ext3 and ext4, they wouldn't even need to be defragmented.

OP: as far as telling everyone to run CCleaner and degrag before installing, LOL you're such a wannabe computer nerd.

btw, Perfect Disk > Disk Keeper > OO > Degraggler

if you want a really lightweight one that's still pretty baller, JK Defrag.

Perfect Disk 10 is awesome. Not only does it defrag, but it even defrags your swap and mbr, and moves them closer to the inside for faster access, along with highly accessed files, and moves files that are rarely touched to the outer end of the disk. it's brilliant.

Hm, thanks for the tip krazyklouds, I think I'm gonna find this perfect disk you speak of, never heard of it before, but sounds nice.

Imm not promoting pircay or paid programs, though I use both.

jsut making it a freebie.

and if your drive is fragmented before an install, where do you think all the bits and pieces of teh enw files will go? tehn you will have a fuckfest of fragments all over, ratehr tehn oriented at the end of teh drive.

wanna be? never claimed it asshole.
