My PC is a 3GB RAM Windows XP SP3 (has been doing this since SP2), nVidia G force 8800 GT, Intel 2 core quad Q6600.

Most problems with issues like this will respond to an uninstall of Punkbuster and then reinstalling a freshly downloaded copy. BUT, if it's a bug that's caused by something (for example, the 8800 series of video cards), then the uninstall/reinstall thing may not help.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Well I've found out that using a smaller resolution can fix it sometimes so im going to give it a go I just hope it's not the whole video card that's causing the problem and i have to use a new one.
