Someone..please help i'm so annoyed at this stupid computer.
There is an incompatibility between programs (like rivatuner and *I think* GPUZ) that require rtcore.sys (and/or .cfg?) and punkbuster. I suggest uninstalling twixx and then searching your HDD to make sure rtcore is gone. OR you could uninstall punkbuster.
Then find and burn (or low level format) any media that has punkbuster on it.
