Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

PunkBuster problem. I have reinstalled and updated PunkBuster, but I keep getting kicked from servers with an error message, "PnkBstrB.exe failed to initialize", I notice in the task manager that PnkBstrA.exe always remains running, but PnkBstrB.exe not only stops running, but disappears from the list once I launch any PunkBuster enabled game. Any solutions? Thanks.

Game disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster kicked player 'GeT_RiGhT_H' (for 0 minutes) ... RESTRICTION: Service Communication Failure: PnkBstrB.exe initialization failed


That means that you were on a private server and either that person kicked you for too much lag (slow connection between your connection and his), or most often that is what happens automaticly when a server admin sets ping time (lag) limits to bump players who weren't getting a clean connection to the server, and the system says you were kicked by the server admin who set the limit.
Fixes:
Try a different server with players located closer to yourself.
Make sure there are not too many people using heavy downloads or streaming applications at your home or on the same network.

PunkBuster


PunkBuster is an annoying program that stops players from using software or mods that might give a player an advantage. PunkBuster is required by all PC users for most EA games and other PunkBuster supported games.
http://www.punkbuster.com/index.php?page=pbsetup.php

The above link contains a download for PunkBuster. Install it to your PC and check for updates to the games you have installed.
If you are getting the message on the PS3 there is nothing you can do since PunkBuster is only used on PC's.

PC Freezing constantly


Run the defrag on your hard drive then a test for errors on it.Let it fix any erors found as it runs . Then try to reinstall the antivirus software. If the defrag or the fix disk software keep going on and on and on then the hard drive is shot.
