Firstly hello to all. I am conscious that this is my first post, and that the first thing I do is impress upon your good nature to ask for help, but I am at my wits end. I have tried searching, but if people have solved the problem, they haven't posted the solution! I have been running COD2 successfully in MP mode on my PC for several months, however my problems recently began with loading Multiplayer. I launch with a desk top shortcut with +connect "Server IP" and this didn't work; symptoms are a frzen splash screen and I need to use program manager to end COD2 because it is not responding. So I used the original start icon, no joy. I tried starting SP - that works fine. I then loaded in Safe Mode, this worked once, giving me the option for a new profile. I created a new profile, exited to desktop and ran my shortcut successfully. I had thought this the end of my woes. However, it has done the same thing again tonight. I have tried a full re-install, restore of XP back to last known good point and not resolved. It now won't start in Safe Mode. Restore allows me a single 'bite of the cherry' but now no option for a new profile.:bawl: Some info, in case this helps. If anyone can help me, I would be very much obliged.

I think that this is now solved, fingers crossed. A helpful chap suggested that Punkbuster was the culprit. I stopped PnkBstrA.exe in processes and the MP loaded fine, many times. I re-installed PBSetup and re-updated. Since then, no problems and that's leaving PnkBstrA.exe running as normal. Hope this helps someone else in the future.:)
