I have an issue with getting kicked from PB servers since last Windows 10 update.
After 2 mins in game, I get kicked with message:
Service communication failure: PnkBstrB.exe heartbeats stopped.
Reinstalled Cod2, reinstalled PunkBuster 10 times, updated, copied other folders from people that have it working, ran PBSVC.exe 10 times, everything without errors, in task manager PnkbstrA.exe is running, and after starting Cod2 PnkbstrB.exe is running.
I don't know what else to do, any ideas?

I have this problem, too. Replacing the folder or reinstalling PB doesn't help. What seems to help is when I reboot the computer before loading the game and then type pb_security 0 into the console before I join the server.
Also, check your Windows firewall, maybe the application does not have an exception in both "private" and "public". The firewall can be what blocks it during the game, too.
Let me know if you find a permanent solution, please.
