yep same thing, i played thegame for 5 months and never had any problems, until recently, I too have updated PunkBuster, have the 1.3 patch, NEVER turn off PunkBuster, and actually only installed the game itself, there wasnt any programs on my PC 'cept CoD2, 'cept for the OS WinXP, updated only upto SP1, and I still get that error, try putting in a trouble ticket in with PunkBuster people @ www.evenbalance.com game specific of course, I spent weeks troubleshooting this issue with no answers.....and I actually re-formatted my drive and reinstalled ONLY the game to try to fix it, and nothing has helped, so I issued a trouble ticket with Microsoft as well, since the only program I had had on my PC was WinXP, WHEW, I thought gaming was supposed to be fun!!!! CoD:UO works just fine though, and Raven Shield too, just CoD2 doesnt:beer:

this has also been happening to me lately. cod2 has been acting weird as of late, and i didnt add patch dl and mods or anything. if i try to enable pb in my options the game crashes and a dx9 unrecoverable error comes up. i uninstalled and reinstalled dx9 and it still happens. ive been playing this game since it came out but im about to call it quits because of all the problems with it lately

Do you use XFire? XFire recently had an upgrade that messed with DX drivers. Lots of people are having problems since XFire updated itself.

Solution a number of people have said worked: uninstall XFire.

Go to C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\players\(your profile name)\config_mp.cfg open with workpad and search the line seta cl_punkbuster "0" so change to 1 seta cl_punkbuster "1" i think that will work ^^ cya :cya:
