How do I add exceptions in the firewall?
« on: May 29, 2010, 04:02:12 PM »
Hello everyone! I'm having troubles with PunkBuster and Avast! Antivirus. It seems Avast is blocking PnkBstrB.exe from running, which is required to play Bad Company 2 (my favorite game evah!). I've tried multiple things; adding the files into the Exclusions, adding it into the Application Rules under the Firewall tab, and putting it into the Windows Firewall exceptions list. None of this has done the trick, as I can see in the Firewall Logs that at the time I get kicked, something has been blocked. Is there any way to add exceptions to the Avast! firewall? Please help! I've been at this for a week! Thanks in advance.

Set the application rule to the highest level of trust (full bars). If you are having trouble, read this.
Avast Internet Security 5.0, Malwarebytes, SAS

I've done this, but whenever I refresh the Application Rules tab, PnkBstrB.exe is gone, but PnkBstrA.exe is still there.... I give them both full bars.
