Right click on My Computer > Manage > Services & Applications > Services > Now look for 2 services PnkBstrA and PnkBstrB.

Make sure they are not disabled and are started

Note: If one or both of those are missing then you can download this program:


It will reinstall both services and fix the problem.

Yes that is a good suggestion. I've updated the initial post here: http://www.geekstogo...ons-t22569.html with some recent additions.

Sometimes, all it takes to clear up the issue is a simple reboot of your pc. However, if that doesn't resolve the issue, then we can look at some other issues.
Loosing key packets can be caused by interference from your firewall/antivirus. It can also be caused by poor network connectivity to your server.

To diagnose this, Open Start, Run, and type in cmd. Once the dos window opens, then you can enter the following:
tracert (replace with your servers ip address). Microsoft has an article detailing it here.

What your looking for is anything after the third line that has either a large spike in ping/time response or no response. You can always copy and past the results in your next post for us to look at.
