Punkbuster problems

  1. Download and run PunkBuster Service Installer from http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads.php
  2. Download cod_pb.zip from http://www.callofdutyview.net/downloads/call-of-duty-punkbuster-downloads/, extract it and replace your original pb folder with the one from the zip file.

Problem: PunkBuster is not running.
Solution: Try running the game as administrator, by right-clicking on the shortcut and select "Run as administrator"

Problem: PunkBuster complains about files with "d3d" in their name being corrupt.
Solution: Reinstall DirectX from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35

Problem: PunkBuster says I'm banned! I swear I'm not a cheater!
Solution: Create a post in the general part of the forum, and we'll take it from there. But we only remove bans, we don't whitelist. If PunkBuster doesn't like your computer, neither do we.
