Anyone know why I'm getting kicked, happens every 10 mins or so...

Here is the message I get:

Game disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster kicked player 'PendragonUK' (for 0 minutes) ... RESTRICTION: Disallowed Program/Driver [89262]

I have manually updated PB and I can't think of anything I'm running to make this happen. It's really taking the shine off playing...

I'm not, that was one of the things I read about Googling for an answer.

I do have several things running most of the time, I guess like a lot of people.



Intel rapid storage technology
MS Security Essentials
MSI Liveupdater
Catalyst Control Centrer
Fraps
USB Multichannel audio
UbuntuOne
Switcher (Swaps audio sources)
XMarks
OpenVPN (has to be off when gaming or Origin wont work)
Steam

Obviously when playing BF:3 I have Origin running...

Not added the game to steam have you? Not that I imagine you would but you might have. Actually not tried it myself so might not work

Yo! where you been, drifting ???? lol, Steam and EA do not MIX. Recall that EA pointedly excluded Steam from this title.


I say you're running, Pendragon, a program like MSI Afterburner, or EVGA Precision.

Tho I run Precision without any problem. Usually an error like that points to an overlay, like maybe Playclaw or Fraps ... tho I run fraps without a problem in BF3.

Mumble has an overlay but that doesn't cause problems with BF3.

ADD: Um, just read your list, why do you have Steam running ? it has an overlay ... that can be disabled.
