Hey, can anyone please help me?

I seem to have a problem with punkbuster: it hates me. I don't even do anything wrong, and I'm kicked from a server for no reason. Most of the time, I get kicked for some wierd violation called "no packet flow." It's really ticking me off!

I installed patches 1.2, 1.3, and 1.4 I also removed ALL skins I downloaded and installed. Took them out and deleted them.

Still, to no avail. I still get kicked for this bullshit violation. Can someone please tell me how I can fix this?

And if this topic has been discussed, I am sorry. My search has yielded no results.

    Hey thanks!

    Now my problem seems to be finding my PB folder. I can't find it in my program files.

    I just installed CoD4, I don't have any other game with PB. Can you tell me where it's located so I can download the updating files?

    It should be in a folder sub-folder called pb, in your Activision folder I believe.

    That's the code name for "you forgot to send us our last month's crack payment".

    Coincidentially, I'm having problems with Punkbuster too.... it keeps on giving me a Comfail #132 error and I have no clue on why it's doing so... I've tried the tool that has been provided previously, but I stilll recieve the same message..... If anyone has any idea on how to fix this, that would be greatly appreciated.
    I am a noob.

    You want a picture of me holding the box with the disk inside?

    Everyone else, thanks for the help. I'll take a look, but I don't remember seeing a subfolder in my CoD4 folder with PB.

    EDIT: Thanks alot! That link you provided really fixed my problem. That manual update thing seems to work. Now to see if it will help me play, I wasn't able to seriously test it last night.
