even when pb is working right, the auto server update doesn't update all the pb files. you can get all kinds of errors including os privilages, 999 timeouts, sever lag, ect. to fix this you need to run a program that will force an update of all the pb files. just follow the instructions below:

This is the executable for Punkbusters Client side AUTO UPDATING using WINDOWS Operating Systems:
http://www.evenbalan...loads/pbweb.exe

Be sure to save the pbweb.exe into the home "pb" folder (C:\Program Files\Call of Duty\pb) on your hard drive and then launch PBWEB.exe. If PBWEB is not launched from inside the home "pb" directory/folder, then it will not work.

This is the easiest way to AUTO update Punkbusters from the player/client side. The game server does NOT update ALL of your game files. This way will do that for you!

I would recommend doing this even if your not having problems or if your having 999 problems along with No Packet Flow errors & PB Initialization Failures.

This can take a little while to run........this is typical!

just ran across this on Punksbusted forums:

With the recent PunkBuster updates Even Balance introduced tighter security measures to prevent cheaters bypassing their system. As a result many of you are now getting kicked for Blocked O/S Privileges when playing games with a 'Limited User' account.

Even Balance are advising to temporarily disable other security type programs you have running such as anti-virus, process guard, SDProtector, etc. to find out which of them is blocking PB's access to resources on your computer. You either need to run PB without the blocking program(s) or play on non-PB servers.

Another temporary solution to resolve the issue may be to promote the 'Limited User' account to 'Administrator' and raise a support ticket with Even Balance (link below)

Raise a web ticket with Even Balance and quote the 3 digit code you received when kicked and as much detail as possible about your PC and the steps you have taken.

Web Ticket: https://ssl.evenbala...icket/index.php
Even Balance Web site: www.evenbalance.com

If we get any further news then we will post here.
