    You have to do the manual PB update (I'm lacking the link). It happened to me,I did the update...and it helped for a day. Everytime I want to play I have to 'reupdate'.

    Any help to me would be appreciated too,I tried getting help in the tech support..but nobody replied.

      well i went to there site and i did this :

      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", then 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.

        That works most of the time;. pbsvc.exe does the trick. It not only fixes PB, but also make sure your firewall rules are ok and tests it.

            Re: PB handshake ?

            It only happens to me sometimes I get onto the server and am just waiting for the spawn screen to appear when it disconnects and I get this message;
            "PB kicked player Westyfield2 for 0 mins Restrictor:service communication failure: PnkBstrB.exe handshaking failed"

            'But what does it mean?' I ask every time? If these error mssages made sense and told us how to sort them out then it would be so much better.

              Actually, the message makes a lot of sense, but you need some understanding on how PB works and of communication protocol. I agree that the common user can't make much out of these errors, except fill in a support ticket at evenbalance (what you should always do in that case, just to bug them).


              Anyway, it says the service PnkBstrB.exe had a communication failure during the handshaking process with the PB servers. (Handshaking is where the service running on your client system and the server tell each other they exist.)

              This can be due to:
              - PnkBstrB.exe not running
              - PnkBstrB.exe not existing on the client (not installed or deleted)
              - PnkBstrB.exe running but blocked by firewall.

              Most of the time, the issue occurs because it does not exist (never was installed). Running pbsetup.exe will fix that by reinstalling pb.

              pbsvc.exe (see my previous post), will check all the cases and verify to confirm it works correctly and firewall rules are correct. It does that for PnkBstrB.exe and 2 other services.

                Well, I do not alllow PB past my firewalls (pc and router's) unless I am doing a manual update, so thats fooy.
                I don't allow pb to auto update.

                      It happened twice to me after uninstalling the ATI drivers with the ATI software removal tool. I just cleaned my system and installed Catalyst 7.9 and was unable to connect to any server after that because the handshake with PnkbstrB failed. Tried starting it manually from c:\windows\system32 but it didn't do anything except flashing a command prompt for half a second.

                      Worked fine after updating with the link Warehouse provided. +rep for that.

                      EDIT: Half the server just got kicked at once by PB... 'client not responding/running' or smth like that. When are they going to fix their mess.
                      EDIT2: Just reconnecting for the tenth time I think -> 2 server crashes, 2 connection losts after completely loading the map and now I 'm getting the handshake crap again... OMFG PB you messed up bigtime!!

                          I deleted the file, and no issues. Maybe just luck, but working so far.
