    These are the two PB Programs that you need.

    After you download and extract, you can run them anywhere on your PC. And delete any files they leave behind once all your updates are complete.

    Run the "pbsetup" First, let it update. Choose your PB game and path to, "BF3" and update the PB files. (should do it automatically)

    After that's complete, run second file "pbsvc " and let it update. It will make sure that your Punk Buster A and B services have out bound access, and are not being blocked by any firewalls. Any errors or problems, make sure you add those to the exception list in what ever firewall your using.

    Then your good to go. Do this for any PB issues like being kicked, or loosing key packets errors in PB or for any normal manual updates


    Download PB set up for your OS here @ http://www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=pbsetup.php

    Download PB svc here @ http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/pbsvc/pbsvc.exe

    Good idea to bump considering the issue a week or 2 ago after the update, was causing PB to mess up the deployment screen

    Another way is right click your BF4 icon on your desktop
    select open file location
    then from this list..........
    double left click installer
    double left click punkbuster
    double left click redist
    double left click pbsvc
    click yes
    check install/re-install is filled
    click next
    click I agree then just follow this through ...this will update your actual installed punkbuster files that you downloaded with your game.. it will auto test your firewall/router port settings as well .... at the end you should get the message all ok..
    Hope this helps .........;)
