Why do I get kicked from punkbuster?

We can't read your mind or see your screen. What error message do you receive when you are kicked?

Chances are, you are getting kicked because PB currently kicks anyone running the steam in-game community overlay thingy. If you receive a kick for "disallowed program/driver" this is probably the reason. Disable the overlay and you'll be fine.

But we don't know for sure until you post the kick reason.

Punkbuster is trying to tell you that vac sucks

We need the exact word for word kick message that you receive before anyone can help.

Ugh, I'm glad that troll got banned.

I'm having the exact same problem, I'm using Win7(x64) and this morning, after playing for a couple of minutes, PB kicked me out of the game. It only says something about being incompatible with my client or something like that.

I've already tried updating it using the PBsetup.exe and I'm still getting kicked out of any game wich uses PB.

Try deleting the PB folder from your game directory and then running pbsetup.exe to reinstall it. Also, try reinstalling the PB services by using the installer from their site.

Yeah, I didn't see one of the above posts and I think I just solved it by disabling the Steam in-game overlay and I played flawlessly for like 15 minutes, without any kick.

Thx for the help!
