      Have you installed antivirus, changed permissions on files, done any firewall changes or messed with the PB-install manually? This problem is usually related to PB not communicating properly.

        Did you play with misconfig and forget to check pba and pn b in the startup boxes.

          ok guys ive sent a ticket to pb, i have not done anything to the files, i simply went on pr today and it happend, if worst comes toworst i will do a total ininstall of bf2, 1942 and 2142 and then delete all pb files ad folders and stuff, but this will take ages so if anyone has a better solution i could really use it?

          I doubt the uninstall thing will work so u may never see me again if worst comesto worst :(

                I'm pretty sure he has already used pbsvc, when he talks about reinstalling pb.

                      Um maybe before you bought a new copy even though its like 5 bucks, you should have gone further into solving it. I have that same error message probably once every two weeks.

                      its says pnkbster.exe, so i always manually go into the evenbalance and swap out some old files with the new ones and presto! Actually a new update came out like a week ago. There may have been another.

                        No, the nature of the problem was different for Ollie, I spoke with him at school today and his problems are totally different to the usual 'punkbuster fails to update/loses packets/loses sec file'.
