alright i started in another thread, but here's the run down copied over.

really need help with this Punkbuster error I keep getting after maybe 1 minute of gameplay on a server. It says: "Service Communication Error: Pnkbstra.exe." I checked up on that file and it was there and intact. I haven't done anything to break the rules in bf2 (hacking etc.) I also even reinstalled the entire game. Nothing is working I need help! :confused:
i have a pnkbstrb handshake failed msg. any help?i have a pnkbstrb handshake failed msg. any help?

at this point i had tryed all the soultions posted by others and by evenbalance.com

yeah i read that. i have mcaffe off same thing, i have my windows firewall down same thing. i sett the pnkbstrA and B to auto, and start them. same result. uninstall PB and reinstall. same thing. i have no cheats on my compy at all. PB is so gay. i have a ticket with PB and i got the exact same answer that is above. i am about to give up.

. merrick and ace were helping me in the other thread, but more heads will help more. thanks.

did you copy the security files from PB to your bf2/ PB folder? also did you DL the PBsetup to your bf2/pb folder? you have to run the PBexe. from the BF2/ PB folder, not the desktop or anywere else , then afterwords go to start then run and type in services.msc then scroll down to PnkBstrA and then under task click start, then in properties select automatic, restart computer, also make sure it is listed in your firewall exception list/allowed and then check to make sure its running in the process under your windows task manager.

You could open a trouble ticket Even Balance Technical Support - New Trouble Ticket but EB already know about the current issues, Im sure they'll fix it soon.

also check your firewall for PnkBstrB adn do the same thing as you did for PnkBstrA.
