It's obvious! You ignored their queries! Either you have some firewall that blocks that or I have no idea.

Nope also checked that option.

Besides ill been playing the last 2 weeks without any problems at all :S

There is a simple solution:

Play it on the 360.

Are you running Vista?
If yes, run the game as admin.
If no, go to http://www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=dl-cod4.php and update punkbuster manually.

I personally use the PBSetup found at the top which will update punkbuster for all games on your system nice and easy.

Don't play on PB servers? I only ever have problems with PB.

In the office, we needed to download punkbuster straight from their website, and manually update it, to get it to work right.

Other likely culprits have already been noted by other readers. Firewall. Privileges.

punkbuster also have a very nice tech support. they were fast replying the first time, but the second reply i got from them took 2 weeks.

Exit the game, and download and save PBSetup.exe into your games /pb directory, and run it. Add the game you wish to update PB for, and press the update button. Now do it again, until it says there are no more updates.

Yay, lets dumb down his gaming experience, Poor control, less graphics! Hooray for mediocrity! :bounce: 

Not mention to exclude all the cool PC mods for COD4.

I have the problem that my anti virus programs says that PB has a softwere virsu... i have done all that you guys have said but i can find the problem with pb... what kind of virus/bug has Pb from begin? Why is it kicking all the time...

Only problem I have with PB, is some ridiculous memory leak it causes on my system, so I cant let it run as a background task if I am not playing otherwise, after about an hour or two the PB process is eating up half my available memory.

fast way= right click on game and select run as Administrator. (this will only run as admin that one time)

long way=
1: create a shortcut
2: right click go to property's
3: under shortcut tab select Advanced
4: check Run as Administrator

search for pbsetup in your system, reinstall by wizard, add ie... call of duty 4, search for updates.

I have found that taking STEAM offline made my PunkBuster problems go way.
