Punkbuster keeps kicking me from Battlefield Hardline

★★★★ Novice

In all the years I have been playing Battlefield, I have never had this issue. It started today when I tried to connect to friends on a Hardline server a number of times:

"ERROR
Game disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster kicked player 'RowDogSA' (for"
 
That is all I get. It does not even give me a complete description.
I have been playing Hardline for about a week now. I did not play the BETA.
 
I tried downloading the latest Punkbuster for Windows and added and fully updated Battlefield Hardline. I rebooted my PC and restarted my modem.
It keeps happening.
 
I am definitely not cheating, so why is this suddenly happening?

macros -  He means like using the scroll wheel to shoot... or a single key press that does multiple things.  I doubt this is the issue.

He likely can't complete the PB error message because I think there is a flaw in the way the game reads these errors out.  It has been passed onto the devs I heard.

Okay actually fix this issue.. here is likely the fix.  I'm assuming the finish of that message says something about PunkbstrA/B not started.

 

Uninstall Punkbuster via Control Panel.

Reinstall using one of these two methods.

 

Origin Games\BFH\__Installer\punkbuster\redist\pbsvc.exe

It might be that you use some macros that BFH detected as an hack or a cheat program...

Hi. As I said: "That is all I get. It does not even give me a complete description."

The error comes up in a red bar at the bottom of my browser and is as I showed it, incomplete.

What do you mean by "macros". I am not aware of any macros running.

You need to know the reason. Without knowledge of the reason will be difficult to find a solution. Confusedmileysad:

You pointed me in the right direction. I noticed that there weren't any Punkbuster services running on my PC. I went to my BFH folder and ran pbsvc.exe. It reinstalled the Punkbuster services and everything is OK now.
