The Problem came after the last update from Origin.
I tried a Restore (pre 24 May restore Point) and it worked. The next day Origin popped up with the update again, I let it update and again the same issue..
It's a patch problem on Origin side.
if you managed to get it running by killing the BF3 process and restating, that's great!.. but i believe for many users this will not work.
Origin, dont send out a patch unless your sure it works for all!

worked!!!! but now its stuck in joining server screen...
Open task manager after you leave a game then go to Processes tab and stop the "bf3.exe*32" process. Just worked for me and i didn't have to restart.
OMF im gna fkng throw this shit against the wall origin is fkn shit battlelog is fkn shit if you quit the game it suppose to go out not this fkn game running in backround??? wat the hell and noway im gna redownload all this stuff.. sitting in africa it takes 2 fkn days to do a update dwnld! and non of this stuff u smart asses says works
I have this exactly same problem... I've tried uninstalling both, the game and origin. If anyone finds a fix, please be sure to share it.
Its been happening to me since last patch, when i kill the process and try to join another server the process opens again but dosent do anything, its just stands there with the same memory usage, like its freezed.
FFS, why i feel like this shit its because Origin? why do they have to ruin every game with it? cant belive that pirated games are easier to play while when you pay for it there its a fuckton of problems.
If they force us to use a shitty program, it should at least work.
Yeah, I have the same damn problem. Since the latest update of Origin, I cannot join a server anymore. Fuck!!!!!!!! This is annoying. Same error: "game running in the background needs to be closed"
happened to me quite a number of times..i simply go to task manager, go under process, not application, and end the bf3 process.. after that i will be able to enter a server
last update from origin, and all hell broke loose. COME ON FFS FIX YOUR GOD DAMN MISTAKES ! AT LEAST REPAY FOR YOUR MISTAKES BY LETING ONE DLC FREE. DON'T BE DOUCHE-BAGS IM USING CAPS LOCK JUST TO PISS YOU OFF ASSHOLES FIX YOUR MISTAKES !
FUCK YOU DICE ! <3 :*
not working....none of all this supposed fixes worked here...i've tried each one... and nothing happened...=\

Fucking origin shit steam shit cause they all want there little piece of us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
there was a time when you could play a game with this thing called a disc and there were no problems
thank YOU DICE FOR LOVING CARING U GIVE TO UR FANS
just do this step ( go to task manager and close bf3.exe ) and it will work but it will work temporary
at least its not just me I actually got to play on 1 server yesterday for a little bit
spent over 2 hours with live chat and still not fixed WTH !!!! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!! Trust me tried everything Uninstalled origin bout 6 times now.
One thing that is pissing me off when i do game repair through origin when it starts to install and initializing it stops and says i need to be logged on as admin to continue. Even though I am logged in as Admin WTF!!
It doesnt work for me either
same problem as thousands of peope here
