    dunno why you bother with peerblock its just a placebo, and will slow your swarm down.

    I just use it as protection someone suggested. What do you recommend besides nothing?

    @NoJuan999
    What did you mean by "Type Status Priority Stars Milestone Owner Summary",
    did I miss something in the article in that link?

    Ok, I am trying to set it as task. Missed that :)

    It was just the way the site auto codes links.
    It's fixed now. :)

    Ok, guys I fixed it with your help.

    Kinda relaxes me now since I don't have to worry about it anymore at startup.

    I first tried the Task Scheduler, then restarted and it almost worked bringing up the admin confirmation window. So at startup all I had to do was click yes. However I wanted it to run without the window. Just run! So I killed the task and tried disabling UAC but no luck then the Startup Control Panel but it didn't also. Finally I went back to create a task and then set in properties/compatibility/Privilege Level/Run this program as an administrator and it worked. It starts last out of all the programs which is funny but better starting than not. I'd like it to start right after my AV but before utorrent. Good enough though!

    Thanks for everybody's input :)
