Pear Guardian fails to load packet filtering driver

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I have been using Pear Guardian 2 on my computer since am a peer to peer user. It protects my computer just the same way a firewall does. When I run it, I get an error message as shown in the image below.

PeerGuardian is unable to load the packet filtering driver. This could happen if PeerGuardian crashed and didn’t have a chance to unload the driver, or if the pgfilter.sys can’t be found.

class win32_error



Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source.

Pear Guardian fails to load packet filtering driver


Hi Clay,
The error occurred because PeerGuardian failed to run.
The solution to it is:
1) Click 'Start' > 'All Programs' > 'Accessories'
2) Right Click 'Command Prompt', Run as 'Administrator'
3) Right Click on the title bar, go to 'Edit' and type: 'bcdedit/set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS'
4) Reboot the system
5) Under Settings, turn on 'Show Allowed' option
