When you installed sof2! Did you buy this or did you borrow the cd from someone along with the cd key? From what the pictures shows, it means that key has a global ban on it.In other words someone was using hacks and got caught by punkbuster and pb has the key on file.
yes, i bought the game 2nd hand, with the cd key wrote on it

chances are then it is a banned cd key. there is no way to correct this apart from buying a brand new copy or stay a way from pb servers.

That's your mistake, Buying a punkbuster supported game 2nd hand is like flushing your money down the toilet because 99% of the time the cdkey/GUID will be global banned meaning you cant play on servers that have PB (anti-cheat) enabled. Global bans are issued directly by evenbalance the makers of punkbuster, Global bans will never be lifted. I can tell you now that the key you're using has been used by 100's of people prior to you, Leaked cdkey hense the global ban. As said before you cannot do anything about it except buy the game brand new. Dont buy it off ebay or simlar sites, Buy it from trusted game retailers and make sure it's cealed in plastic wrap.
i also keep getting this error for some reason http://gamestars.us/2.JPG
