I've run into a problem with Battlefield 2142 and other games but punkbuster at least gave me a number that i can use to reference the problem so i can ask if anyone else has had this problem and if so how they resolved it. I opened a ticket with even balance and haven't received a response yet so now i'd just like to see if anyone could shed some light on this problem.

So to put it briefly i play Battlefield 2142 and i keep getting a message saying "PB IMPORTANT: Restriction: Disallowed Program/Driver [80249]." I checked the punkbuster website and read the manual or whatever that says violations in the 80000's are related to cheats or hacks i forgot, but the problem is that i don't have any cheats hacks or any addons at all running with Battlefield 2142 or any games i play and i have to mention other games because the same thing happened with warcraft 3 except they won't even give me an exact reason why i am temporarily banned but that seems to be the only reason that i could think of since i don't do anything that would call for the temporary banning of my ip in warcraft 3.

So i would like to know if anyone has encountered this problem before and if so what was the program that caused this to happen. i tried running my computer with only the essential programs running eliminating what i thought to be all extra backround programs but it still ends up kicking me. The only clue i might have and this may not even be a clue is that i tried installing another game recently, because of the temp banned ip in warcraft and the game would not start even in single player because it said daemon tools 4 was running and that it couldnt run at the same time... so i uninstalled daemon tools and that didnt work it still wouldnt let me play so maybe theres something there that could be causing this problem in all three games.


i do have an open ticket with even balance and once again the violation is "PB IMPORTANT: Restriction: Disallowed Program/Driver [80249]."


thanks in advance for any help given,

Check to see if you've ever run any "game or system tweaking programs" that could play with the clock timing cycles on your pc.
