Can't enable PunkBuster

When I try to join a server it tells me I need punkbuster. So when I goto options to enable punkbuster, the option is grayed out. How am I supposed to enable punkbuster?

think you need to get it from novalogic they stop paying for EvenBalance service some time ago.

they adapt it to thier version of a anti-cheat tool now days.

sorry don't know all the details only PunkBuster is no longer a paid service item now for JOTR family.

don't even think there going to be anymore updates for the game ether.

go to www.novaworld.com log-in as ask the members there for info i think they will tell you how to get it to work. but there is a item i think you need to get from nova and they be able to tell you in greater details.

did not know anyone can buy it online and download it totally. i only heard people buy it online and get the Cd in the mail from novalogic, inc

will this is a first time i heard it not saying your making this up, only i really never heard anyone able to download the game online after they pay for it.......

will if you downloaded online then go update it first then see if you get that error punkbuster thing then.......it no longer being use...novalogic inc done away with their service. they have thier own anti-cheat item running for it now days.

seem some players had trouble with a spyware going around, this one case

I did a full scan of my pc files for ad-ware, viruses and stuff. I found a file called "Freepod Toolbar". 1 was a file, the 2nd was in the registry. I deleted both of these and I don't seem to have any more punkbuster problems. So check your pc for ANY ad-ware, spy-ware and viruses and get rid of the files and delete all out of the registry.
Seriously be careful with the registry if you don't know anything about it. You change or delete the wrong thing, you could be wasting hours re-installing everything.

Once I do a scan, I search for the exact words the anti-virus or ad-ware scanner tells me.

asker> You can protect your system from the "Freepod Toolbar" and other malware ActiveX controls by installing

software: SpywareBlaster 3.5.1

i tried the above methord and i had pb installed but it didnt work for me, but with the buy online game i think it would be more of a case of he just didnt get it! considering nova stoped paying for pb, firestorm once u get it and installed it if u have any trouble updating punkbuster like i did pm me and ill send ya my pb folder, or i can just send it to ya and see how ya go but im sure it has to be intsalled first not just cut and pasted, but like chief said it could be spyware or something like that!

I wrote to evenbalance and this is what they said:

Note #2: Unfortunately Punkbuster support has ended recently for Joint Operations. You should still be able to play the game using the command pb_security 0:

When you enter the game, bring up the console with the ~ key and type
pb_security 0 and hit enter. That will allow you to play on a server that is running an older version of PB.

Punkbuster for Joint Operations cannot be distributed anymore. You could however copy the "pb" folder from a friend.

LoL thats funny what they said, "When you enter the game, bring up the console with the ~ key and type
pb_security 0 and hit enter. That will allow you to play on a server that is running an older version of PB".
If you havent got pb installed ya cant even get into a game if the servers got it enabled!!!!!!
The pb_security command dosent work anyway even if ya could get in, and like i said and what they suggested was the only thing that work for me! Cheers mate its on its way.
