Merrick Ok it has been brought to my attention that this is a HUGE issue these days .... [color=yellow][color=blue]SERVER Disconneted: You have been kicked by Punkbuster (for 0 minutes) ....Restriction: Inadequate O/S Privilages.[/color] [color=blue]ANSWER[/color] [color=yellow]Is there some way to modify my system configuration to be an administrator equivalent from PunkBuster's perspective? Yes (under Win XP Pro or Win 2K). This can be accomplished by setting certain privileges for the user that will run the game. To do this, first temporarily log in as an Administrator. Then go to Control Panel => Administrative Tools => Local Security Policy. This will open up the Local Security setting window. Expand the Local Policies folder and select User Rights Assignment. This will bring up a list of security settings for the computer. You will need to add the user that will be launching the game to have the following privileges. If the user is logged in while making changes, the user must be logged out and back in for the changes to take effect. · Debug Programs · Load and unload device drivers · Manage auditing and security log · Modify Firmware environment values · Profile Single Process This is done by double clicking on the setting and then the "Add User or Group" button. You can either type the user or group name into the field or click on advanced to select from a list. If you select advanced, you may need to click on the "Object Types" button and make sure all 3 boxes are checked. Then click "OK". Click on the "Find Now" button to generate a full list of all users and groups on the system. Highlight the user you want to add the rights to and click "OK". Keep clicking "OK" untill you are back at the Local Security Settings window. Repeat this process for the rest of the list. That user will now be able to play on PB servers without getting kicked for "Inadequate O/S Privileges".

I have the same problem as this guy. I've read over that before aswell. That is to set the privileges for another user, on another profile on Windows. The problem is, we are already using the administrator profile to launch BF2 and STILL, it will not allow us in because it says Inadequate O/S Privileges.
yah same I am the administrator and it gives me the error still after trying what you said and the PB site said and what the peopel from there help system said
I would die without GF

Go to www.evenbalance.com and read it all for yourself. There are a number of things that can cause this problem, the most likely being spyware/malware. The instructions attached previously are there because the spyware alters the security policy on your computer on the currently logged in account! You may be logged in as admin but still not have full security permissions and that is why you are getting these problems.
The security system on windows 2000/XP Pro is hugely complicated and trying to fix things over the phone without being able to see what is there is sometimes impossible. Failing having an expert on hand to actually sort things out your only option may be a re-install.
But before attempting any of the instructions on the website you should ensure that your system is free of spyware and malware by running Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D otherwise your probelms will continue.

Go to Run and type control userpasswords. Click add and name the user "Installer" or something. Leave the domain box blank, hit next and change the group to other->administrators. Try logging in as that user and installing/running the game.
