Well, your HiJackThis.log doesn't really show anything "fishy". Try complately uninstalling PunkBuster, as described here: [Guide] How to completely remove PB and BFP4F. If that still doesn't help, contact EvenBalance, please.

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:

Why couldnt Punkbuster getting a vallid certificate? Cause Windows certificate ? made windows update. root certificate Microsoft is vallidate till 2020. Microsoft Hardware certificate has expired in 2002 ??? How can i change it?? any suggestions?

Did you also install the optional updates? For some reason, Windows was unable to verify the certificate that the PnkBstrB.exe was signed with. One of the optional WindowsUpdates is an update for several root certificates.

maybe punkbuster try to certificate punkbuster K/B with them.

Look into your punkbuster systemlogfile shown in.

if you find something like certificate couldnt validate. then you shout give it a try. sorry my logs are deleted afte deinstall game. dont know orginal sentences.
just in time I reinstall from internet.

Ive tried every "solution" given in the posts here and everything ive found in the internet: updating pb, firewall/antivirus off, completly removing bf4free and pb, new installs, windows updates and so on but since the last pb-update it still doesnt work, i always get this error and disconnect on every server i try...since a few days its impossible for me to play.
Before that pb-update i didnt have any problems with pb since i started playing this game (long ago)
stupid pb...

Try running WindowsUpdate and install ALL updates it finds (also the optional ones). Seems like EvenBalance used a new certificate that to sign their executables and Windows needs an updated list of root certificates Wink
If that doesn't help, contact EvenBalance, please.

Seem to be solved here, so solution is the certificate issue described on top of this page.
But for those who do not want to install to much strange things Smile there is another solution.

Look into your punkbuster systemlogfile shown in.
/windows/system32/logfile/punkbuster

If PnkBstrA.log says : "Too many failed certificate verifications (C:\WINDOWS\system32\PnkBstrB.xtr); Load denied."

Find the File: system32\PnkBstrB.xtr . Rightclick and >properties> Digital Signatures(tab) > Details > View Certificates > Install Certificate. That should do it , it did here. Even if the window still says "windows does not have enough information to verify this certificate."

OR skip the game all together and enjoy the summer.
Take you life back !, do not waste more time&/life on stupid games with no lasting benefits.

************* Well the above solution does Not work I found. ***************************

Welcome to the forums. Looks like your very first post in here is nothing but ranting to vent, right? Tongue
If you have issues with PunkBuster, attach your pbcl.log, please. If not, go find a thread that discusses your issues (if any) Wink

Again here is the solution for

1. the pnkbstrb.exe initialisation fail
2. Look into your punkbuster systemlogfile shown in /windows/system32/logfile/punkbuster if you find something like certificate couldnt validate.
3. Download and install rootsupd.exe from Microsoft http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/...x?id=29434 and it works.
4. Smile Wink

The problem was induced by Punkbuster update to v.2.306 for BF2 (and related games) on May 17th.2012 which needs rootsupd.exe installed on your system.

For me the solution works on my 32bit Win XP.
