Hey Everyone,

I recently got Battlefield 4 for PC, but before I could play it Origin notified me that I had to download something called PunkBuster. According to them, it is an application that is designed to stop cheating and hacking in EA games (such as aimbotting etc.) and is required to join any EA server. My problem with it is that it automatically loads PnkBstrA.exe on startup (I believe PnkBstrB loads when I load a game). I can't disable it, as it isn't listed under the 'Startup' tab in Task Manager. There wasn't any option to disable this when I installed the program, and I don't really know what to do. It wastes resources when I try to boot up my computer, because the majority of the times I boot my computer I am not playing games at all. Plus it kinda creeps me out, and makes me feel like they're spying on me or something...
