Service Communication Failure: Pnkbstra.exe


Recommended Posts


Since the latest update (I think) I'm unable to play on a PunkBuster enabled game. Everything was working great up until a few days back.


Now everytime I attempt to enter a ranked/PunkBuster enabled game I get booted and see the following message: Service Communication Failure: PnkbstrA.exe


I've searched the forums and tried:


Downloading Pbsetup and Pbsvc


running test (all ok)

Running as administrator

Allowing through WIN7 firewall

Allowing through Mcafee firewall



So far no luck.


I'm running WIN7 32bit


Any ideas?
