This could be a problem with your Punkbuster installation. You could try to update or reinstall punkbuster
to resolve this problem.

Instructions on how to update/reinstall Punkbuster can be found through the following links:

In some cases it helps to remove the PB folder from your game folder before updating Punkbuster.
