Manually updating Punkbuster *recommended*

To Manually update your local PunkBuster Security Files, choose "Save As" from your Web Browser's "File" Menu and explore to find your game folder and the subfolder called "pb".

Save this file in that location (/pb/pbsec.htm or /pb/pbsecsv.htm). The next time you start your game, your PunkBuster will have the latest security information necessary to accept auto-updates from PB Servers.

The new System with the opening from the site is horrid, i rather play through steam and through my dekstop, i pre-ordered this and i can't even play it, sorry EA but you've disappointed all of us once again.
I'm LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSING IT!!!!!! I'll try everything! read every troubleshooting post on this website and inte still won't work, EA this is for you ---> -.-
This is a load of BS! Having a game like this having to depend on another product, as it does. You'd think that it would be professional as well. This game is like having a nice pair of running shoes that can only use dental floss for laces. Honestly, I don't think I've ever had so much frustration trying to get a game to work since the days of the 386 PC. At least it "saves" your progress.
aarrrrggggghhhhhh !!!!!!!! FUCK !!!!!!
> "this file" > not providing link to file

This doesn't fucking work and this isn't going to fix it. Fix your damn game, enough said.

Was having occasional issues with PB before updating it. Now I get kicked within 2 minutes 100% of the time.

punkbuster crap, still having problems
Yeye, now fix this.... http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/forum/threadview/2832654489418461510/
awesome freakin game, still having the damn crash problem though, great to see that you are actually working on a fix now i guess! GL HF!
Did about all 'fixes' including this one that i could find on the forums, nothing works. Played for about 2 hours this morning, crashed after that and havnt been able to enter a game ever since.
I'm sorry but this does not help
I can't even play !! I'm always lagging. Who is having the same problem? :/
