BF4 PC Beta keeps crashing and I see a disconnected message like 'You were kicked out by PunkBuster'

[ Edited ]

Here is an error message I get when BF4 beta closes up on me.

 

Game disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster kicked player 'XXXXXX' (for 0 minutes) ... RESTRICTION: Service Communication Failure: PnkBstrB.exe initialization failed

 

 

What is this supposed to be ?

I initally thought, some game server admin was kicking me out for some reason !

But then when i saw the lines "Punkbuster.exe" i ruled out that possibility. Guess it's a game issue.

Kicked by PunkBuster

When I keep on trying to join a Battlefield 4 beta server I am kicked by PunkBuster- PunkBuster kicked player 'lambiam2011' (for 0 minutes) ... RESTRICTION: Corrupted File/Memory [81495]. I don't understand why. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Same error, but its not windows related. because i just saw origin installing an update for bf4 beta. so as of the update you get kicked out for cheating no matter if you do or not... nice work EA/DICE and yet another game that doesnt work.
