Well the thing is i dont think i have a firewall...and i would think that they are, i can play all other games online without a prob. This is themsg i get after having done what you said:

PunkBuster kicked player 'PshycoJ" (for 0 minutes)...
RESTRICTION: Service Communication Failure:
PnkBstrB.exe initialization failed

yeh punk buster A isnt the problem here..its punkbuster B...PnkBstrB.exe initialization failed

it looks like it is a punk buster error...did you get any errors when re installing punkbuster?

and if your not sure if u have a firewall...wot anti virus software have u got? and what OS are u running cos if u have xp service pack 2 or vista..then u have a windows firewall..and u will have to go in to the program persmissions to allow the programs to access the internet

ahh..ok..that tells me punkbuster b isnt installed...use pbsvc.exe to uninstall again/..then close the program..and click install this time....then download PBSETUP and add battle field 2 into the game list...then click update..that will update the punkbusters...then allow it throught ur firewall again...along with the game...that should do it...if not..and your still getting the same problem...you will have to uninstall the whole game...then reinstall it...update punkbuster...then install the special forces...and update punkbuster again...its a long process..but the games awesome so its worth it:)

I re-installed the game. Installed battlefield 2. Installed the battlefield 1.41patch. Then installed the pbsvc and the pbsetup and updated. Then installed Spacial Forces. Once again intalled pbsvc and pbsetup and added the game and updated. I STILL GET THE SAME ERROR....."PnkBstrB.exe initialization failed" ....everything is allowed thru my firewall..both games and both punkbuster files....the "B" one is jsut NOT WORKING ....is there a fix for it or can i manually overwrite it somehow?
