Having problems with your Computer Games ?

PunkBuster problem. I have reinstalled and updated PunkBuster, but I keep getting kicked from servers with an error message, "PnkBstrB.exe failed to initialize", I notice in the task manager that PnkBstrA.exe always remains running, but PnkBstrB.exe not only stops running, but disappears from the list once I launch any PunkBuster enabled game. Any solutions? Thanks.


Answers :

Try uninstalling Punkbuster completly, make sure its deleted from program files as well, then try installing it again see if this helps.

Too slow We bought our computar about 2 years ago and it is really slow. There seems to be plenty of space left on the C-drive but the D-drive is almost full. There are also a lot of program always running when I check the task manager but I don't know how to stop them or what I need and don't need. Should I get more memory? Or try to delete things? I don't want to get a new computar because the one we have isn't that old and it works fine otherwise.
