please help me, im having problems with punkbuster! :wall:

what i already tried:
i uninstalled pb (pb folder was deleted automatically + i manually deleted all pb related files from my System32 and SysWOW64 folders)
then i reinstalled it with ET_PBSetup and then i ran pbsvc

results:
Is PnkBstrA explicitly allowed?
C:\Windows\system32\PnkBstrA.exe NO
Is PnkBstrB explicitly allowed?
C:\Windows\system32\PnkBstrB.exe NO

everything else is fine, in green and OK :mrgreen:

how do i explicitly allow those files?

note:
1) im the only user and administrator on my PC, and i always run everything i should as administrator
2) i have no commands blocking pb in my cfg
3) i have no firewall at all
4) my avira free antivirus does not block pbsvc or any of those pb-files in my windows folders
5) i use windows 7 (x64)

thx

Did you already disbale the Windows Firewall or tried to allow the punkbuster files within it?

Did you try this hints:

i think i found the problem now but i cant solve it :wall: :wall: :wall:
i should allow those files (PnkBstrA nad PnkBstrB) by right clicking them -> properties -> compatibility -> (tick the box) always run as admin.
this is impossible because those are .log files and are shown as "text document", hence there is no option to run them as admin :wall: :wall: :wall:
what shall i do?
