Question Punkbuster Kicked For Losing Packets 9003

WTF? Is anyone else running into this problem? It started yesterday for me, and i can't stay in a server for more than 10 minutes if i am lucky. usually it boots me with this message a couple mins in.

Does anyone know a fix for this? My PB is up-to-date. i have read on other forums of people with the same problem but with no solution.

Someone help, cause this sucks!!!

I am having the same problem, my punkbuster is also up to date. I have not been playing long but today is the first time I have had this problem. Can not find a solution either.

Try running PBsetup again. I've had to do the updates twice in the last 2 days to get this to stick. Current version as of 4/22 is v2.265 A1382

I'm getting this issue as well

Initially I was getting the error message:
"Time Out trying to Update PB Client"

So I updated it from the evenbalance.com website with pbsetup.exe

After updating I get the message:
"Losing Key Packets 9003"

Seems like the PB files on Steam are out of date and the PB files being installed by the PB updater are broken.

its not just you guys having probs .. PB really screwed up latest update ... there QA is going downhill since BC2 came out. If you can actually play check your PnkBstrB in task manager you will see that it is using arond 20-25% of your CPU with a memory leak. So if your lucky enuff to beable to log in well your gonna have probs after a few rounds.

ok, i tried something last night and it worked. all the other times that i was playing, i was also on teamspeak talking to my game mates. i was also losing packets with my TS when i was looking at my connection info. so i shut down TS, and we all went on the chat system thru Steam and i played for about 4.5 hours without a hitch.

was my TS to blame for this packet lose issue? i dunno. it might have been just pushing me past the limit, but i have never had this problem before the other night, so i dunno.

i will try and play somemore with just the Steam chat going and see what happens. Come on PB and fix yo sheeeeit

*EDIT* - ok, PB just came out with another update for BFBC2 today that says it fixes a problem where PB was using an enormous amount of system resources ( update from the other day ) everybody update there stuff and lets hope it works!!!

There were a ton of people having this issue on other websites. Apparently if you uninstall TuneUp Utilities or other system tweaking software it fixes the problem.

I had a program called Process Lasso that managed my computer's resources and I think it was causing the issue. I turned it off and it doesn't happen anymore.

It could be due to, like the poster above said, PnkBstrvB taking up an abnormal amount of resources and the tweaking programs not liking that.

I don't know who's worse, PunkBuster or DICE. Great game but way too many issues.
