Alright, so keep the A and B in SysWOW64? Still getting kicked though.

is it worth doing a poll to see how many are playing without any issues at all and maybe trying to get more of a picture on this issue as to how its affecting the game ?
Thanks

Is there any extra help with this PB kick issue , it is now kicking me whatever I do . I have tried every conceivable fix mentioned and nothing works. I can play for a while then booted then cant get back in for quite a while. I cant keep turning the PC off and On again and again .
Thanks
Tom

So I reloaded the entire Assist 2.5 ran as admin, made sure my Firewall was giving access to the game and PB. everything worked . Two days the client has been open on my desktop and I have played in a few servers no issue . This morning tried to enter my server and PB heartbeats kick again . So back to square one . No feedback from any of the Admins , Has anyone managed to eradicate this issue at all?
Thanks
Tom

Finally it worked, i think ( i hope  :D )
Win 10 / Firewall and AV disabled.
Just reinstalled assist today

I followed some instructions i read somewhere:
Start assist as admin
fix pb ( only fix )
Reboot
Start assist ( not as admin )

I'll test this tonight

B5. do you automaticaly or manualy start other programs before you start 25assist?
B6. since when do you play 25assist?
B7. which antivirus program do you use?

Ok so I fall into the B catagory info as follows :
Win10 Pro 64 bit fully updated
Reinstalled Assist 3/3/21
Currently relying on Windows defender Firewall , built into Win10
IP is BT Internet
I do not start any other programs before Assist
Not sure how long but I have played the game for many many years .
Using Panda Anti virus no issues .

I am not fully knowledgeable about Defender but it has an allowed Apps and features section that you tick the listed programs etc to allow access . I have deselected Army ops , Punkbuster A and B and the game still runs . Also the more times you stop and start the game these listings become duplicated so I have
SysWOW64.PunkbusterA.exe listed twice and the same for Punkbuster B
PLus the same for System32pnkbster A And B
Plus the Listing contains Assist Pnkbster A.exe and B.exe twice also . Could this be causing an issue ?
When the game stops due to the PB Heartbeats issue , I can see from Task manager under Services Pnkbstr A  and B are still running .
Also when I reinstalled Assist I deleted any old folders and files that were associated to the previous installations .
Also the game ran fine for over a day and I visited a few different servers , kept Assist open on the Desktop and no issues but then the kicks started again some 24 or so hours later.
Cheers
Tom
