Call of Duty 4  PunkBuster Losing Packets error 9005   Fix

go to control panel then Adminstrative Tools then Services and look for PnkBstrA and PnkBstrB

double click on it and click the log on tab and check Allow Service to interact with desktop  then click ok

do this for both PnkBstrA and PnkBstrB

you might just see only PnkBstrA on the list when you first go to services

if you do start cod4 and alt tab back to desktop and refresh the list and you will see PnkBstrB

even if cod4 isnt supported by PB installer anymore you will still need PunkbusterA and PunkbusterB installed and running on the PC to play on PB servers, which means you will still need to download PB regardless. You can download from Evenbalence.com then create a folder named "PB" In your Cod4 Directory.  Add the files from this download to the folder "PB" - -That's MY Mediafire so no worries. But you can also get the same files here

if you don't mind creating an account.

After you have added the files to your "PB" Folder in your COD4 Directory, and Installed PB and ran an installation check and all is ok, then restart your PC, and game should work fine.

Not totally true in my case. I installed both CoD4 & 5 and never installed pb except from the website. I can now join the games with no problem. Only thing is after I quit playing I see where there is a pop-up saying that Punk-buster could not be initiated.
