I recently bought CoD and I love it, But i love playing online. But I am having trouble with punk buster. When ever my game that I get in gets done loading, and I am about to play, it kicks me and for the excuse it says Server Disconnected- has been kicked via punk buster (for 0 minutes)... Restricion: inadequate O/S Privileges. What is that, and how do i fix it, I have windows xp home.

i think this might be a case where your punkbuster doesn't update itself, which mine doesn't...i think. if that is the problem then you'll have to manually download and install the updates for punkbuster, which i'm sorry to say i don't have the links for atm...it used to be under my favourites but i've just reformatted today hence not having it...though sum1 else might post the link. if not, just search in google or something for punkbuster, cod etc... you should be able to find either punkbusters official site or a gaming site which will let u download the updates this is my only solution to your problem, because it seems that the server's pb is not registering with yours properly let me know how it goes...

Yeah, I have tried updating manually, but I am not sure if i am picking the right updates, and properly installing them. I am not sure which one I pick.

I HAD THIS PROBLEM BEFORE TOO MAN, so listen up. It was really annoying, cause every game that had punkbuster gave me that message. Go to the Punkbuster website and look under FAQ or Troubleshooting for COD's Punkbuster. There should be a question under FAQ that reads something like: "why do i get the error message...blah blah (your message)." It then tells you what to do. It has something to do with the priveleges designated by the Admin account on your computer (in XP). For some reason, certain priveleges aren't given to the account that u are using to use the internet or connect to a game--very confusing, just do what they say. Hope i can help :uhm: Punkbuster: www.punkbuster.com
