I am one of the lucky ones who has managed to play online since launch with a few crashes. This moring I keep being kicked by punkbuster after a couple of minutes of play.

'Game disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster kicked player 'hoggamadogg' (for 5 minutes) ... Violation '

I manually updated PB after the first couple of kicks but has made no difference.

Any ideas?

Uninstalled PB .Powered off router then powered off system. Left for 5 minutes. Powered up pc only. Then turned on router, reinstalled PB.

Have had no issue since I did this.Did read on another thread can't remember where though. Thanks to whoever wrote it.

Haven't been able to play the game at all. Here is what happens....
Game Manager reports:
Joining server
Connecting
Loading level
Game Disconnected: You were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: Punkbuster kicked player___________ (for 0 minutes)...
PnkBstrA.exe

Coop works. Campaign works. Must be a server problem, B2K problem, or ??

Updating Punkbuster does not help.

Step 1:
download the punkbuster installer / testing exe
http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/pbsvc/pbsvc.exe [evenbalance.com]

Step 2:
run the exe and click "Test Services"

if you get "Tests completed successfully without error" goto step XX.
if it fails in any way goto step 3.

Step 3:
Select Install/Re-Install punkbuster service and click next and let it fully install

Step 4:
if after Install/Re-Install the self test gives a error post on the forum with a copy of the test text.
if there was no error goto step 5.

Step 5:
Download the pb updater
http://www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=pbsetup.php [evenbalance.com]

Step 6:
Add battlefield 3 and then click check for updates

Step 7:
after updating you should be good to go.


- notes:
this repair guide does not cover opening ports or setting up firewall/antivirus you will need to set this yourself
