When I want to start the game, there is an error:ERRORGame disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster kicked player 'Erundo' (for 0 minutes) ... RESTRICTION: Service Communication Failure: PnkBstrA.exeWhat does that mean and why comes that error?Sorry for my bad english I'm Germa
Make sure your anti-virus is not blocking punkbuster, also check windows firewall.
Punkbuster has 2 services running in the background in order to check your PC for hacks or 3rd party programs influencing the game.
They are called:
In order to enable both do:
1. Press Windows button and R at the same time
2. enter "Services.msc"
3. Locate PnkBstraA on the list
4. Mark both and select "Start the service" on the left side.
4B. If already running restart it.
This should resolve your issue.

Sometime punkbuster has problems updating and you can do it manually.
Pbsetup. add game after its installed and verify the games installed location

I keep getting the same problem with my game and its only just started happaning after the latest battlefield 4 server updates and no i can not play the game. I have done what you have explained but i have no been able to find the files but i know i have punikbuster installed and battlefield 4 added, i can even see that the files A and B are ticked in allowed past firewall but i can not see the files on the Services.msc at all. Do you have a solution?

I finally fixed the error. I couldn't find PnkbstrA in services so I re-installed punkbuster through the battlefield folder.
1. Locate your BF4 folder; Origin games > battlefield 4 > Installer > punkbuster > redist
2. Open the .exe and run the installation
3. When finished, go into services tab as mentioned prior and locate pnkbstrA, ensure it is running and set to automatic
4. Restart BF4
