  1. I'm sure you guys are tired of this so I'll make it quick.

    A while back I had a few malicious processes working together and protecting each other. I had no idea how to get rid of these damn spyware processes so I downloaded the free version of ProcessGuard. I used processguard to get rid of them all at once. Anyway, a few days after I had the urge to play Battlefield 1942 after a long break from it, but I found I could only enter servers that didn't have Punkbuster enabled. So, I tried updating PB to see if I could solve the prob. No dice. I find out that PG can cause some problems with it so I uninstalled it. Still didn't work. Deleted PG's folders. Nope. I went into the registry and deleted all of ProcessGuard's keys. Still didn't work.

    I scanned for any spyware on my PC, and got rid of it all, but the problem still isn't solved.

    So did I miss a key or two? Or what? It's really frustrating not to be able to play the games I want because I wanted to take care of a problem on my computer. Anyway, any assistance would be much appreciated. I'd like to play the games that I paid for now...

    Hi, You may still have files or remnants of files that punkbuster can still see and does not like.
    Try the following: In windows explorer go to tools, folder options, view and enable Show hidden files folders and click OK. Now with windows explorer still open navigate to your main windows folder, usually C:\Windows, open the Search menu and select All files and folders, then, one at a time, enter the following in the search box. "procguard.*" "pguard.*" & "pghash.*" (without the quotes) Do a search on each and delete any instances of those files that are found.
