Hello tom's hardware, ever since I updated to Windows 8, when I join a game and play for maybe around 5 minutes, the game would crash and give me a "pbcl.dll" error

I have tried reinstall pb, restarted pc, ran the game in compatability mode and as admin, allowed pnkbstr a and b through firewall, everything, but it would not work. I could play other punkbuster games fine, just not Cod4. Any ideas on this?

I am having exactly the same problem!

I guess it's something about Windows 8. I have 2 machines and in both machines Cod4 crashed randomly when you are playing in a server with punkbuster. Lan mode is OK.. it's punkbuster and windows 8 related.

Hope there's a fix soon!

I think if it works in Windows 7.. maybe we need just a windows update like those compatibility fixes they release... If it works in windows 7 it's a windows 8 problem. Of course you are right.

Microsoft should fix this issue inmidiatly. They need to have gamers from they side if they want to sell windows 8.
