COD2 failure

OK, here's the scoop.
I have had COD2 on my laptop (XP) since it came out in 2005 and have had no issues with it either single or multiplayer modes.
All of a sudden it starts locking up on my son in single player mode. He would start the game and it would fail within the firt minute. I only play online, so never notcied any issues right off. Then all of a sudden the Punkbuster selection was OFF and when I selected it to ON, it totally threw me out of the system.
After a while we decided to uninstall/reinstall everything.
That seemed to take care of it for a couple days, but now this morning it's doing them same thing. I try to play online, was denied entrance into a game for not having Punkbuster selected, went back to select PB and it boots me.
I searched all over and could not find anything that discribed this problem on any of the COD2 site.
Hope someone can help.
thanks... :whistling:

Does Punkbuster give a reason for kicking you?

If you don't slect PB "ON" in the multiplayer settings, you can't get into the game servers. When you go to toggle the PB from "OFF" to "ON", it just shuts down the entire game system. doesn't even kick you back to the opening page. Just boots you out of COD2.

I don't know if this is gonna be any help but I play wolfenstien and sometimes punkbuster screws up and kicks me, it happens to a lot of people. Sometimes I could not log on to games because of punkbuster but then again wolfenstien is an old game and COD2 is new so I think your problem is different

Thanks to all for your help.
Changing the seta cl_punkbuster from "0" to "1" was it.
I think the full code that Jayare012 posted did the same thing, but I'll have to find time to compare.
One thing I did find is if you have multiple player profiles, then it has to be changed for all of them.
My sons play the single player games but still needed that changed in their profiles to make it work.
