I seem to get a lot of problems with punkbuster as the it will kick me after a few hours of play. This usually happens right when the game crashes which I have no clue why it happens. The crash then causes a pnkBstrA.exe to kick me due to loss of heartbeat. I then have to reinstall punkbuster and even that doesn't work most of the time and I am reduced to playing something else for a few hours.

what kind of firewalls are you running? Make sure the ports for punkbuster are open, both in your software and hardware firewalls. To be honest, I get this error every great once in awhile, Ive always written it off as a internet connection problem (I have lousy internet) but, if your having it more then every once in awhile, I would start with your firewalls

Do you also get random game crashes seems to be the only game that this happens to with no form of error message or reason to why it has happened? This does not happen with more cpu/gpu consuming games like company of heroes,WoW, and team fortress 2.
