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.

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
