Was playing the game and got kicked because pnkbstrB could initialize. Checked my services and pnkbstrB was disabled. Try to restart it but told me it was marked for deletion. Rebooted pc and the pnkbstrB service was gone. When it happen to you, go to start pbsv.exe, choose the latest one run it. Than do test services, this will see the service is missing and reinstalls it.

Thanks for the info. Not sure why post this in virus/malware though.

You think the reason it was schelduled for deletion was because of a virus?

This can happen if the Punkbuster client needs to update the core files. Here's what you do:

1. Download the PunkBuster Service installer here.
2. Run it, and the FIRST time, select "Uninstall", IF it is available.
3. Reboot.
4. Run it again and reinstall.
5. Reboot.

Should be golden.
