Default Are there any similar programs like Peer Guardian for Vista 64 bit?

Peer Guardian keeps freezing up on me.
I have Vista 64 bit edition and I am looking for something similar to
Peer Guardian

There's a release candidate for Vista, and it works great on my computers.
http://www.softpedia.com/get/S...Peer-Guardian-Pr.shtml

Also, the Windows 98 version works in Vista. Apparently Vista breaks a lot of XP compatibility because Vista handles services differently. The Win98 version works because it's not a service.

Article explaining vista services
Quote:
The problems [with services] are caused by Windows Vista new security feature called Session 0 Isolation. Previous versions of Windows ran system services in the same login session as the locally logged-in user (Session 0). In Windows Vista, Session 0 is now reserved for these services, and all interactive logins are done in other sessions, causing VNC server unable to accept incoming remote control connection request.

So in order to make VNC server on Windows Vista works properly, the workaround resolution (at least until the VNC developers to come out with proper fix or update to address the new security constraint in Windows Vista) is to run VNC server in user mode.

That link for the Vista one doesn't even include pgfilter.sys

I use this on Vista x64. I had to manually sign pgfilter.sys in the PeerGuardian directory. Instructions for self-signing can be found in another thread on this very forum.

Can anyone point me to the thread about self-signing drivers?
