    If you launch the game it should launch pb for you

    Since your original issue was being kicked by punkbuster it would be more useful to see the actual kick message you are getting. Enable punkbuster messages somewhere in the game settings and open your console (no idea which key it is on us keyboard layout) to see the punkbuster output. It can be several issues and just doing random reinstalls is generally not the best idea to approach these issues.

    Does it throw up a service status error code when you launch the game and if so what code do you get ?

    I have just checked and your punkbustter A program is not running . Check that is allowed through your firewall and your antivirus programs . If you do not know how to change these settings you can test it by switching them off and launching your game and seek advice for those settings . Remember Google is your friend lol.

    PB issues are the trickiest to troubleshoot. Here are some basic things to check/try to resolve this issue
    (Please try each of the suggestions below, then respond to this message to let me know if it does or does-not work for you)

    1.) Ensure your P.C. or anti-virus software is configured correctly (uninstall Zone Alarm, Comodo, or KillerNIC - these will not allow PB to run properly)

    2.) Check your windows firewall or windows defender. Make sure they are configured correctly (go into your firewall settings and make sure that PunkBuster is allowed to pass through your connection)

    3.) Lastly, follow this link to a helpful PB manual. This is not the property of the America's Army Development staff, but a well written document by a player in the community. Usually, if the above two suggestions do not resolve your issue, this document has the instructions on more specific and complex fixes.
