This error just says that the Punkbuster parent server cannot communicate with your local punkbuster client service so it terminates your connection to the game.  Try these steps below:

  1. Open windows firewall and make sure that your router is not blocking either of the Punkbuster files.
    2. click advanced settings( on the left) and then inbound (also left)
    3. Find PnkbstrA.exe and PnkbstrB.exe (if you have two of both, its fine)
    4. right click on each of them>properties>programs and services
    5. make sure that "all programs that meet the specifications" is checked
    6. then go to the "Advanced" tab and check all 3 boxes. Domain, Private and Public.
    7. REMEMBER TO DO THIS FOR ALL PnkBstr Files. then save and quit.
    8. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 3 and delete "Pb" folder.
    9. go to these 2 links:
    http://websec.evenbalance.com/downloader/download.php?file=1
    http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/pbsvc/pbsvc.exe
    10. download and install both
    11. Run Pbsetup.exe (the first link)
    12. manually add a game (eg. bf3) - this is an important step as sometimes it will not solve the problem until the game is manually added
    13. check for updates.
