Ok here is one for you.

Tonight 3 times I got kicked by punkbuster playing in a EA server no restrictions. Has not happened before this. Only change is that I changed from my M249 SAW and used the Elite USAS I bought before the 1st of Dec.

Iam really shure that some bad guys had listed us at black lists.

Why is this possible. Iam angry about it and spend much time for playing again on servers. I installed punkbuster again again and again after deinstall it. the craziest thing was to loose every time punkbusterb from services. How can it be?. Its horrible to know someone programmed things that changed my system without knowledge about it. f* y* punkbuster.
Iam sick about your f* software. what have you done all the years of trouble with your great sh*. the problems arnt new. Are you sleeping all the years? BF2 wasnt playable cause so many cheaters/hackers. Here the same f* antisocials at work.

Ive heard about blacklists where normal players are put on. Hackerlists. Now it seems ive been put on such a shame list. I hate you hackers and hope one day you will be hacked by someone who can hold you down. YOU destroy games. great games. But for you it makes no sence. aseh* bit*

if you wanna be shure not listed at "hackerlist" put this in your pbcl.conf file and you will see infos about your disconnect down left at your screen.

The reason for this issue is a new PB update, wich also affects e.g. BF 2:

So, you most likely deleted the PunkBuster services Wink
Please re-install the PunkBuster services and make sure that they don't get blocked by your anti-virus/firewall.

I have tried un-installing PB, restarting computer and then re-installing PB (using pbsvc_p4f.exe), everything installs ok, no error at all, not even on the test afterwards.
I've also tried updating PB with pbsetup.exe, but no matter what I do I always end up getting
Code:

and kick/disconnect after.

The pbcl.log doesn't contain any more information than what I've described above:

Make sure that your anti-virus/firewall/security-suite doesn't interfere with PunkBuster.

hi Homesen,

i've made a snapshot with those settings in cfg pflasterpunk.

I was declared as a "supermonkey: hacker". (only at one server till now). Everytime pbstrB is gone and you have to reinstall it.

the only thing ive not done is to cleanup the

C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\My Documents\Battlefield Play4Free\mods\main\cache already seen. Just cleaned "Webcache" folder. I will try it out. the last thing I wants to try for the moment.

not all just the last entries:
