I just a few days ago randomly could not join a server anymore. I would load all the way up and then it would crash giving me the message: You have been kicked fomr the server Minutes (0) Inadequate O/S Privelages I have updated PB manually and automatically un-installed and re-installed and still nothing. Please Help! :confused::(

Yeah, i get that problem too. I recently installed punkbuster since i've only just started playing online and most of the games available required it. But since i did that it takes ages to load then i get the "You have been kicked from the server Minutes (0)" message. I can still join the few non-punkbuster games that r there though.

Some help with this would be great!

Please someone help with this. I just reinstalled everything after a system crash(Used to play FH without any problems), and now I am getting the same message. Sometimes it happens before I start a game, other times it is about ten minutes into it. PLEASE HELP! I WANT TO PLAY! Kevin

"Starting with this version 1.084, the PB Client now requires the game to be run as the administrator user or equivalent under Windows XP/2000 " :0wned:

Well I found out the problem with Punkbuster, but it wasn't an easy road to fix it in my case. The problem is exactly that you do need to be admin, and in my case, I was. The rot of the problem was some form of adware. This kind of adware changes some of your user preferences and in a way, makes your computer think your not the admin anymore. The adware I had didn't just cause pop-ups, it directly installed stuff onto my computer straight to my desktop. It usually happened right at startup, so if it happens to you, you've got the adware I had. Anyway, I fixed mine by rebooting my computer, I needed to do it anyway, but others out there don't need to do that to fix theirs. At the Punkbuster website they address this problem, a way to fix it, and how to make it so it never happens again. Snoop around the site(I don't remember exactly where I found it, but it is there), and you'll find a program that you can launch to find out if that adware is on your computer. But don't go and finish the program just yet(Don't delete the file or it will mess sh*t up ion your comp). Go to your recovery console and do as the site tells you. Once that is done, then complete that program I told you about earlier. Hope this helps some of you out there that are dyign to play the good FH servers but can't.
