Punkbuster is essentially dated software and it's aging badly. I guess some recent Windows update messed up with the core functions, breaking it for the most part.

Hey,

Have you guys checked your antivir quarantine? Mine cleaned two pb dll files and quarantined them. It just flashed quickly so I was lucky to see it. I allowed them and I dont have any issues.

I'd like to note that copying the pnkbstr files to my system32 folder fixed my PB Restriction kick :)

That solution also worked for me.  Found on LGC discord server: go to your c:\windows\sysWOW64 directory and copy the following files to c:\windows\system32 and restart: [PnkBstrA.exe PnkBstrB.ex0 PnkBstrB.exe PnkBstrB.xtr]

A user on discord (c00mbeast) proposed this as a "consistent fix"

Quote
CONSISTENT PUNKBUSTER FIX
1- go to your "add or remove programs" and uninstall Punkbuster

2- Go to your system32 and syswow64 folder and delete your remaining PB files (should be PnkBsterB.exe, PnkBsterB.xtr, PnkBsterA.exe, pbservice) Delete ALL pknbster files.
(make sure no instances of punkbuster are running in your task manager)

3- Navigate to C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\25Assist and delete the punkbuster exe in there (should be pbservice.exe or something like that)

4- restart your computer

5- launch 25assist and DO NOT USE THE FIX PB OPTION

6- join the server you want that has PB the server will install PB for you into the appropriate folder.
(DO NOT MOVE THE PB FILES INTO YOUR SYSTEM32 FOLDER MANUALLY)

this has worked for me consistently, I learned that any other games that install PB tend to break AAO25
If you launch or install another game that also installs or updates PB there is a high likelihood that it will break your AAO25 PB again. Simply repeat the steps above.
(if for some reason you cant find a server that will install PB, try the LGC servers)
This has worked consistently for me 3 times after I had installed other games with PB that updated/broke AAO25's pb
(if for some reason you cant find a server that will consistently install it, try the LGC servers)

Hey all, just downloaded Assist the other day. I tried the fix above and I'm still having the same issue as others. After doing the Add/Remove Programs, I even run a search for ALL files on my PC starting with "pb", "punk", and "pnk", deleting anything that's related to Punkbuster. Even after doing this the 25Assist window says PB is still installed. I join the LGC servers with the hope it will install PB correctly, but I always end up getting kicked. I'd really love to start playing AA 2.5 again, but it seems Punkbuster does not want to let me  :(.
