Please tell me what you think. Recently I installed a private firewall which I believe is pretty aggressive, it constantly has windows pop-up either asking me to allow permission to certain sites or warning me of "suspicious behavior," the firewall does this enough that it is annoying and I was considering uninstalling it. About the same I installed the firewall I joined this site and started using fuckhook the latest version on an old bf3 account. I didnt care about getting the account banned so I used it indiscriminately for about a week, then a curious thing started to happen, my aforementioned firewall started giving me warnings that PunkBuster was trying to access my program files, I told the software to block PB. Now, if I deny PB access I get kicked off the server for "losing packets 9005" which appears to be happening at an increasing rate. Anyway, I believe my firewall saved stopped PB from detecting my hack! I can still use it even though it has been detected but, as I said I get the boot for denying PB access on occasion. What do you guys think?
I am using ZoneAlarm, it is free. It alerts you when PB is trying to communicate with your computer and gives you the choice to allow or deny access. I know I must have been flagged for some reason because the PB attempts to access my system became more and more frequent, to the point it was very annoying. I eventually allowed PB access for a few days (with no hacking going on) and it seems like once it checked out my system it started leaving me alone again.
