Try playing on a server that has PunkBuster OFF
to see if it's PunkBuster problems

You do not get an error message if your PB chaser in the start of the game ( 0 to 10 min. )

first try Manually updating Punkbuster and see if it helps

It is very important to open ports

Have you tried enabling these ports http://help.ea.com/article/online-ports-for-battlefield-3 [help.ea.com] ?

look in your router/modem manual how to do Port Forwarding
or call your ISP (to see if they are open)
or with PFConfig it is very easily. download select modem/router and games. and it does it for you

No.
PnkBstrB isnt necessary (when not in game). It will be created when it is needed.
PnkBstrA must be in system32/syswow64.

I tried to reinstall PB due to 9006 error. Now I get the error that my PnkA isn't working. When I use the C/A/DelTask manager, I don't see either PnkA or B in services anymore. How do I fix?

^see page 2 here for more info http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/forum/threadview/2832654347816031518/ [battlelog.battlefield.com]

1/ click start and type "services.msc" (without the quotes) then press enter
2/locate the punkbuster A service, make sure it is set to automatically start, select the "log on" tab and tick the box beside "local system account"
3/press ok, then reboot

Deleting scrnshot folder in AppData PB has worked for some.

Not enough feedback to understand why/not though.

for 64bit users
BF3 is a 32bit program, so PnkBstrA.exe - PnkBstrB must be in System32 to
if they are not there, so copy them in

Just spent a few hours trying to fix this and its just not happening today, ill have to try again tomorrow anymore attempts today will result in me having to buy a new monitor. After uninstalling/reinstalling PB it no longer detects "Game disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster kicked player 'Blade420666' (for 0 minutes) ... RESTRICTION: Service Communication Failure: PnkBstrA.exe"
