Ok, so I get an error message when i try to join a game online, and after talking with some support people for the game we have came to the conclusion that a re-install would do, and im going to try to install over my previous before i do the format way. And I was wondering if i could uninstall SP2 and then downloading the update from Windows would suffice. Or do I have to locate a SP2 cd and reinstall from there or even worse uninstall SP2, then reinstall SP1 then update to sp2.

Sorry if that makes no sense. and thanks for any and all help you could give.

Well the game is America's Army, and it's because of Punkbuster that i'm getting kicked. The problem is normally fixed by virus', so I assume its a check to make sure everythings cool and over time all the apps and what not have partially corrputed files in widows. Or maybe i'm just crazy.
