A friend of mine is having issues connecting. He has never had an issue before, and now is getting PB error = Restriction: Service Abnormality upon connecting. I have looked around and found nothing. I was thinking it could be the antivirus so he shut it off... No go, that didnt work. I also do not see a similar post in the forums so any suggestions? Oh he is running XP.

Note #2: This is a restriction kick issued by Punkbuster when it doesn't pass on of the internal tests. We have received reports from users that several versions of Zonealarm may cause this behavior.

I would like a list of your running processes. To get them do this:

Start the game, minimize it, then follow these steps:

Start => Run.. => cmd

Then type:

tasklist /SVC > tasks.txt

That will create a text file with a dumb of your current processes into C:/Documents and Settings/[your user]/tasks.txt. Paste the contents in a new note.

I've had the same problem since I installed the latest Punkbuster update. I tried your "tasklist" but my Windows XP says that command doesn't exist...

Is there a way to tell my Defender Pro firewall that Punkbuster is OK to run?!?

yes you could alow punkbuster communication within your firewall

went into the firewall advanced settings and specifically look at settings for punkbuster (a andB) set incomming /outgoing to allowed
Should work

I checked and found ET, Punkbuster a & b all set to "both". But if I turn off Punkbuster it runs fine.

I completely deleted and reinstalled ET. Even went into system32 folder and deleted PB. When I start it up I get a box from Defender Pro and click ALLOW for ET. Had to go into firewall manually and set allow PB also. Still has the same problem...

Finally got a real answer from the Punkbuster folks! I just had to turn off the "Compatibility Mode"...
