Whenever i try to join multiplayer games it says Kicked by Punkbuster (0 minutes) - Inadequate O/S Privileges What does that mean??? I looked at the punkbuster FAQ but when i went to administrative tools i dont have Local Security Policy

There are a few other reasons why punkbuster causes this problem, I suggest reading the FAQ a bit further.

The file they want you to dowload is easy to find, just input the filename name into google, its very common. I even uploaded it here once for somone, just do a search on the forums for that file, but ending in zip not exe.

Found this review on the net;

In our spyware effectiveness test, Webroot detected 85% of spyware and disabled 69% of it. While this was a good result, Spy Sweeper's effectiveness seems to have slipped behind other vendors in the past few months

Not saying it's no good, it seems to be effective in what it does, however you should never rely on just ONE anti-spyware tool, there's just to much garbage around these days. I use lavasoft Ad Aware, Spybot S&D and Spyware Blaster.

Oh yes while I am here, XP Home doesn't have a Local Security Policy Icon, Only XP Pro so you can't do that part of it. Yo may be able to get at it with the local Security Policy editor. Enter this GPEDIT.MSC into the run command under start menu.

Good luck

Um, you read this bit right?

The VX2 adware edits your user rights when it infects your computer, and many programs do not repair this when they remove it.

You may not have but you may be affected by its removal. If you are you still need to correct the problems. Even though it shows you as an ADMIN in the user control panel it doesn't necessarily mean that your admin privilages are intact. The piece of software they are recommending to use can has a "restore policy" button that can be used restore all the user policies that may have been affected by the spyware's incorrect removal.

I can't click onthe link to see if you are a proper admin with all admin rights because it is only a picture of your user control panel with the label "admin" by your name, it's a simple procedure to go into the registry and edit the labels to say anything you want, you could be a "lame duck" just as easily. :D

Not being nasty here, just don't take everything at face value just because it has a label next to it is all I am saying.
