If you have windows 10 and you can't play the game due to that punkbuster is not starting.

1 Check if you have your punkbuster updated to the lastest version
http://www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=pbsetup.php [evenbalance.com]
2 Check if the punkbuster is running in your task manager and or check your windows service ( start run "services.mce" and look for PnkBstrA and PnkBstrB ) and start it manual.

3 if you dont have the PnkBstrA and PnkBstrB setup in your windows services.

1 Click Start and type CMD in the Start search box
2 Right click on CMD in the list and right click on "Run as administrator"
3 Type the following command: net user administrator /active:yes
4 Type the following command:
( for windows 64bit )
sc create PnkBstrB binpath= C:\Windows\SysWOW64\PnkBstrB.exe start= auto
sc create PnkBstrA binpath= C:\Windows\SysWOW64\PnkBstrA.exe start= auto
( for windows 32bit )
sc create PnkBstrB binpath= C:\Windows\system32\PnkBstrB.exe start= auto
sc create PnkBstrA binpath= C:\Windows\system32\PnkBstrA.exe start= auto

Finally check you windows services whether the service has been created and started.

if you had them in SysWOW64 then you probably use Wrong/outdated version of pb/pbsvc.exe, incompatible with 64-bit Windows.

what do you do if punkbuster IS working, but kicking you out of the game?
wait for evenbalance to get of their hands and start working with the proper update?

Why does EA treat there customers like garbage? Why should we have to goto the forums to find a hack like this to get the game to work on a major OS?
