Bad Company 2 freezes on Bootcamp
I’m trying to play Bad Company 2 on bootcamp (iMac “late 2009”, windows XP single user “student whatever edition”), but the multiplayer apparently always freezes after less than 1 minute of play. I’ve tried playing on a server without punkbuster, but it freezes anyway.
The single player works fine instead, so I guess it’s not an engine problem (unless the multiplayer is for some reason much heavier).
It’s not an account problem either, because with the same account I play without problems from other PCs.
Does somebody have any idea what could be causing this, and how to fix that?

If you run any sensor programs ,Realtemp ,Trixx, Afterburner ,hardware monitor or any equipment that needs to address the memory range where punkbuster resides it will freeze.
Mine was a small software widget that came with my logitech g13 for monitoring CPU and Ram usage that auto ran in the background.
If you can play freeze free on non punkbuster servers , then you know for sure it is the punkbuster causing a conflict.
It could be worth manually updating your punkbuster on the bootcamp partition as that can cause a lot of problems with most of the Battlefield games (BF2, BF2142 and BF:BC2 in my experience).
What do you mean when you say freezes? can you give any more details?
