Peer Guardian Versus Windows 7 64-Bit. Wait, there is no fight, not when Peer Guardian runs like a champ in Windows 7 64-Bit. I used Peer Guardian in Windows XP to keep the “pesky” people away. Once I loaded up Windows 7 64-Bit I loaded PG to find that it would not install or load because of driver signing. This article will walk you through the steps necessary to install & enjoy PG on Windows 7.
1 First go grab the newest Peer Guardian file.
2 Download Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider aka DSEO.
This free program will override the Windows 7 driver signing process. This is a perfectly safe program, research it if you need assurance.
3 Install DSEO and enable TEST MODE and reboot your computer. Notice the “Test Mode” in the bottom right of your desktop…
4 Once rebooted, you need to install PG2 but DO NOT launch it. Open the PG2 install folder, (C:Program FilesPeerGuardian2), and look for “pgfilter.sys”. This is the unsigned driver that you will sign using DSEO’s sign file option. Type the path for pgfilter.sys which should be (C:Program FilesPeerGuardian2pgfilter.sys), and press OK.
5 Now copy & paste the following code in the run box. In Windows 7 the run box is found via START>ALL PROGRAMS>ACESSORIES>RUN.
bcdedit /set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
6 Your done! Remember you may need to Run As Administrator PG2, just right click on it’s icon in start menu.
