Hi. I've been playing cod2 since it first published and it has worked fien and I have been able to recover all the errors that have popped up. Now my pb seems to have a prob with a file named PnkBstrb.exe... all though all my other files r in shape and settings are fine this little file gets me out from every server within 1 minute. This makes it impossible to play cb wars and makes the game terrible. I googled the file myself and foun a series of sites claiming that the file may be a virus but my antivirus doesn't find it... If i destroy the file the game will dl it automatically when ever i start it again (no matter if my dl options r on or off)

something to read: PunkBuster Online Countermeasures

it is not a virus, and you cant prevent it from beeing downloaded since it is part of punkbuster and not the game. it is now required to play cod and cod2 on pb enabled servers, but you'll know what you have to when you read the link

Re-configure your firewall, anti-spyware and anti-virus to allow the pb services to run.

They're services ran by PB to check for.... well, whatever it is PB wants to check for. :D They run in the memory all the time but do the checks only if you're playing in a server that has PB enabled. You can read more about it at www.punkbuster.com.
