I didn't make it!
Firsty, Yes I have read the above sticky but it didnt solve the problem. I keep getting the 'Inadequate O/S Privilages' message and being kicked from most of the servers and its making me :mad:. I downloaded the VX2Finder and restored the policy then rebooted, also I set sound at 22k, It still doesnt work. This is the first time I've been on the forum so maybe there is something somewhere I have missed. Please help. Oh yeah, if it means anything I have the latest patch installed.
Your logged into XP as the administrator are you? And, as you said, you've run the VX2finder and not found it?
If your in XP as the adminstrator, then delete all other profiles, so that only the admin one is left.
The go to the PB site and download and run pbsetup.exe. Get it here:
Follow the instructions for using pbsetup.exe on the PunkBuster site.
Once you've done this, your security policy with pb will ahve been updated.
If all this fails, check this thread out:
Or this one:
Yes, like Tally said. If your using XP u must be a Administator..I have no clue why, but you have to.
the reason Bee is so that pb can have full access to the hard drives. Pb deep scans your drives so that it can tell what files and folders you have. Pb doesnt like anything which stands in the way of doing that - including drive utilities which prevent such deep scans, in order to prevent viruses and scumware getting on them.
This is also why PB wont let you run COD or UO if you have such a utility on your system, coz it cant deep scan your drives.
XP has tighter file access restrictions that were put in place with its NTFS5 enhancements. So to play any game that is installed to the "Program Files" dir, needs to copy files to %SystemRoot%\... or modify the registry at all, you MUST be an admin (in the "Administrators" group) or have gone through so many ownership changes and set as Power User, you should have just made yourself an admin. So essentially, just about every worth while game. I have also seen odd issues similar to this when a person is in the local machine's admin group, but the machine is a member of a domain where certian GPO (group policy objects) are in place.
