I just wanted to chime in and say that the solution as posted above for adding the two services to the ACCEPTION list has worked for me. What I don't understand is why, PnkBstrA.exe continues to run after BF2.exe is closed.
im having a hell of a time here and i am so frustrated because ive spent so many hours trying to figure this out and i cannot find any solution :shakehead: i never had this problem before and i've been playing for a few months on this pc and i never changed anything and one day, bam, it starts doing this....
heres my problem, when i reboot the system both punkbusters will be "running" (they are on automatic) ... then i play the game and when i join a server, within 1 minute i will be brought to the desktop with it saying that "punkbuster B" has been closed which then causes me to be kicked from the server and for a moment appears on the services as "stopped" ... when i leave the game and look at what is running in services however both A and B are once again "running"
how do i get punkbuster B to not "stop working" during gameplay? it just will not stay working no matter what server i'm on. i have never had this problem before up till 2 days ago. i reinstalled the game and i also updated punkbuster. can someone help me?
Your windows firewall may be blocking it... Go back a page in this thread.. I listed the procedure for this... Try it at least.
windows firewall is off ;\ im just behind a router
i just looked at your post and i am using windows vista so i can't really figure out what to do since your using xp - let me know if you have any ideas ;(
