I've been getting this error msg (topic name) for most (95%) of the FH2 and BF2 servers for the past 3-4 days.

I've been googling it and it might be cos of punkbuster cos my firewall is not blocking anything related to bf2. I've been trying to manually update PB but everytime the test phase gives me:

Checking firewall settings         OFF
Is PnkBstrA explicitly allowed?
C:\Windows\system32\PnkBstrA.exe   NO
Is PnkBstrB explicitly allowed?
C:\Windows\system32\PnkBstrB.exe   NO

Which i think should be the problem. Although the test gives me clean bill of health in the end.
I've been googling this "error" but i have not yet found a workable fix for my pc.
If i understood it right the problem is win7 + pb. I do not have those files in here C:\Windows\system32\ but those files are in the C:\Windows\syswow64\  cos it is some win7 64bit thingy. I tried moving them there and giving them firewall access and admin rights, no luck.

Anyone else experiencing this? Anyone know how to fix this?

I run win 7 64bit and MSE is my firewall and i should have everything allowed there that should be allowed. BF2 and FH2 worked just fine not that long ago and i don't know what changed this.

Tnx.

Alright. Complete re-install of BF2 and FH2 seems to have fixed it for now. I hope i don't have to do this every week to be able to play FH2 :-/

Actually you shouldn't have to, but unluckily some people just seem to have a contract with Murphy on this.
I can understand why so many game developers go to consoles... keeps it oh so simple and simple means more profit. Unluckily we are stuck with BF2 and our beloved PCs. ^^

You should be able to fix this problem by just deinstalling PB, but as I said above, unluckily every system is different.
