you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster kicked player 'FourTwoFour' (for 0 minutes) ... RESTRICTION: Disallowed Program/Driver 120181

I haven't changed anything since last night.. and I have absolutely nothing running in the background.. Origin only. No Steam Overlay, no Teamspeak 3 Overlay.. no Anti Virus Programs, nothing.

That's all I have running http://i.imgur.com/0TEpO.jpg [i.imgur.com] and Origin of course, turned off ATM.

I repaired the game, updated Punkbuster (not really, it was already running the latest update) I restarted my router, I set my router back to default settings.. fooled around with services, added Battlefield 3 ports..


From a French thread, the translation is not perfect.

This applies to people who experience the PunkBuster kick issue This is a restriction and in no way a violation so you are not going to get banned.

Awaiting a formal response from Evenbalance, meanwhile turn off the following:

Ingame Steam Community
Ventrilo Chat Overlay
Team Speak Overlay
Mumble Overlay

DxTweaker
ATI Tray Tools (depending on version)
Game Accelerator (uninstall, then reboot)
EVGA Precision tool
Pando Media Booste

I urge you not to run Xfire or Fraps or any software with information on the screen.

Finally, note that any software can interfere and because we all have different PC, I suggest you perform the following operation:

1. Press "Windows + R"
2. Type in "msconfig" in the search bar and press ENTER.
3. In the window that just appeared, click the "Start"
4. Click on "disable all".
5. Restart

Do this:

Download the file to pbcl.cfg FTP link on the BF-France (Battlefield 3, Battefield Bad Company 2 - Toute l'actualité BF sur BF-France.com [bf-france.com])
http://www.bf-france.com/fichiers/telechargements/pbcl.zip [bf-france.com]

Once downloaded, unzip the pbcl.cfg and place it in the following folder:

C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Local\PunkBuster\BF3\pb

Start your game, join a game server with PunkBuster enabled.
Wait for a while and quit the game

Return to the Users folder or users as appropriate:

C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Local\PunkBuster\BF3\pb

Open the newly created LOG file which is called pbcl.log with a text editor and copy the last few lines

Finally, in this case do this:

Open immediately troubleticket in English from Evenbalance with the message quoted.
You must identify the software useful functions unauthorized hook for now.
Even Balance Technical Support - End User License Agreement [evenbalance.com]

Put the information in the ticket that you are about to get from this:

1. You'll need to download 'tasklist' from the following site: http://www.computerhope.com/download/winxp/tasklist.exe [computerhope.com]
2. Start the game, minimize it.
3. Click "Start" => "Run" => type "cmd"
4. Type "tasklist /SVC > tasks.txt"

This procedure will create a text file with a list of your current processes. The text file can be found at"C:/Documents and Settings//tasks.txt". Paste the contents of this file into a new note on this ticket (you may need to put two notes or more if you have several of them).

Wait for the Punkbuster team to reply and fix it for you.

I'm having the same problem... I spent 49€ in this game and I really love it (at least when I'm actually playing), but all this crashes, freezings, disconects, PB and other problems are driving me crazy. Can't play a game from the beggining to the end.

Some programs like Steam, Xfire, Mumble or other might not be accepted by Punkbuster. I had the same issue in COD4 with the Steam Overlay.

Do you usually run Xfire, Mumble or anything while playing? Any 3rd party programs that is.

Or as the guy above me said.

We are obviously screwed until PB does an update to fix this. If only there was some official announcement about wtf is going on...

Same here. Haven't knowingly installed or updated anything and was working fine for me the early hours of the morning. Even did a system restore to last night and still the same issue.
