Hey guys,..
i got this punkbuster issue today
" RESTRICTION: service communication failure PnkBstrA.exe "
this is what it says when i hit the console cmd in the game
now i have been trying to uninstall the pb and reinstall it back again which you can do by this pb install/uninstall application "pbsvc.exe"
but when i try to uninstall it i get this :

" Checking user is Administrator OK
Checking Administrator privileges OK
Opening Service Control Manager OK
Searching for PnkBstrA Found - OK (stopped)
Removing Service/Driver files OK
Removing registry entries ERROR
Removing logs OK
Removing log directory OK
Finished! "

and when i tried to install it didnt go sucessfull it just stopped by,and window just got closed
i reinstalled the game back serveral times through the steam, but no luck
iam doubt about that " Removing registry entries ERROR "
and tried to get those issues fixed through the ccleaner still no change
any other ways to completley remove pb from the pc so i can get a fresh install ?

You could talk to the steam people about it, it might be a server side issue.. Or not..P:

Does the game run regardless? If it's not then it could be just an orphaned registry entry which is fine by most people, doesn't cause any harm with nothing associated with it.
