grrrr why is AA so damn difficult?

Post by Loveable_Hobo » Thu May 14, 2009 10:21 pm

I'm seriously about to give up on this game...whenever I come back from not playing there's at least 1-2 issues that completely prevent me from playing for extended periods of time.

this time I'm able to get in game and sometimes play for 10-15 minutes, then it suddenly starts uncontrollably spamming "O/S Exception Notice" in console and then I eventually get kicked for "Ignoring MD5 Tool Queries." I have been reading shit online and trying different things all night and nothing is working....I really don't understand why my computer, which works perfect with every other game I've ever played, struggles so strongly on America's Army.

1. Turn Windows defender off.
2. Run AA as an Admin.

I'd try what Fraggy said. If not, there are other things you can do too...but I wanna see how that goes.

1) Did you try this? http://www.punksbusted.com/forums/index ... wtopic=153

2) Try getting your comp up to date with all the latest Windows Updates.

3) Find those TWO services that run to maintain PunkBuster. Idk what folder they are in... Right click them and go to properties and make sure they are running as admin too.

4) New graphics drivers may help also.

5) Try deleting all the PB files and redownloading via PBSetup.

Those aren't really in order. But you should try all of them.

If that doesn't work, you may actually have spyware. Try Anti-Malware from Malwarebytes.

Or you could contact EB and see what they say.

O/S privileges normally means PB doesn't have proper authority to the system, whether it be an anti-virus, a virus or windows itself.

I knew but I figured he ditched it by now.

FYI: I run Kaspersky at "HIGH" detection and AA runs fine for me.

In fact, four years ago (the last time I had a major virus) my computer actually was owned via a virus that I got from Norton updating itself. Sweet irony.

Firefox + Spybot S&D scans from time to time = great success.

I talked him into getting something; but obtaining it free isn't the best way to get an AV. :P

its the exact same as your version...the only non-legit part of it is the key.

i decided to get it because looking through warez-bb, i realized that it would take about 2 minutes to obtain and fraggy was making such a big deal out of it.

He says that he can play as long as he disables it yes.

I play with it enabled and have no issues.

Me either, I <3 Kaspersky. Hmm...there must be a setup issue that is causing it. I'll look into it.

But do all the above steps I listed too. See if that helps.

Warez has a really easy to use system for pirating kaspersky so i would recommend it Sean. Can't tell if it's actually doing anything though figuring I've never had computer troubles before I had it.
