Have you tried using the 'test' option? Does it fail or pass the test?
Make sure your Firewall/AV etc aren't blocking the processes.

The PB processes often get blocked by them.

1. Delete the PB folder from the game directory (and in C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\PunkBuster\[game]\ if you are using Windows Vista)
2. Follow the guide above to uninstall the PB Service.
3. Run PBSetup (Guide found here ) to reinstall PunkBuster (this will also reinstall the services).

If that fails, either Google around for more solutions, or create a ticket with Evenbalance here and explain your problem in as much detail as possible, as well as mentioning everything you've tried so far.

Possibly, but since I assume you're going to reinstall the same software again, unlikely.
Just wait for a response from EB for now
Keep in mind it can take anywhere between 24h and an entire week to receive a reply, so be patient.
It's also important to note that every time you create a new reply to your ticket, it is automatically put at the end of the queue again.

They're the creators of the Punkbuster software..if they can't help you, it's unlikely anyone can
As I said, they receive a ton of tickets every day, have some patience.
