PB issue


Recommended Posts

I keep getting kicked by PB for this issue,


PunkBuster Client: Removing '[RoK.HammerKrook]' 5883 (0 minutes) RESTRICTION: Disallowed Program/Driver [130446]


I have tried a few things which none have worked so far,


such as:

- updating graphics card drivers

- running spyware programs

- antivirus programs

- reinstalling ET


Does anyone know how to fix this error?

What operating system? Might lend a hand as well, to post some system specs/info. A 0 minute restriction means something is out of whack, but is not a hack, per-say. Just means it doesn't agree with PB, but not knowing what o/s you're using, or what hardware or driver versions you're using can leave this open to nothing but a best guess.


Also, have you tried updating to the latest PB revision? www.evenbalance.com and download pbsetup.exe and run it, update all your pb-related games.

That type of kick is normally associated with 3rd party applications trying to hook into the game (teamspeak overlay/steam overlay etc)

If you can't trace the culprit, open a troubleticket with EvenBalance TroubleTicket link they might be able to pinpoint whats causing the problem for you.

Key word with any troubleticket query is patience, they get a lot :)


In the meantime, if this kick has only just started happening, have you installed new software for anything ?

Have you got the latest drivers for your gfx card ?

Have you ran a sweep of your pc for spy/malaware ?
