Hello my friends of Battlefield, I would like to help me with a problem I have: When I go to a server I get this error "pb important: restriction: Service communication failure: Pnkbstrb.exe" and seconds later I'm kicked from the server

Thanks for the help. xxXMactavishXxx

90% of PB problems can be fixed by reinstalling PB.

1) Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features
2) Uninstall "PunkBuster Services"

3) Download http://www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=pbsetup.php
4) Add game(play4free) the tell it up install PB and update.

Best of luck.

De[v] why must you post your stupidity all the time when it comes to PB? PBSetup is not going to install PB, it will never install PB and never has installed PB. The only goddamned thing it does is update the client. NOTHING ELSE!

If you're getting a PnkBstrB.exe comms failure dude make sure you have an exception made for it in \system32 and \syswow if you're on a 64 bit OS. Be sure you have UDP ports 44301 and 45301 forwarded and set PnkBstrA.exe and PnkBstrB.exe to AUTOMATIC in the Services and Applications tab on your Computer Management Console then reboot.
