****Apperantly EA fixed the problem and punkbuster program now shows Battlefield 3 in the list to update. If you don't see it, is at the bottom of the list. *****

**** Thank you for your praises. I am just a gamer and I understand you just want to play. ****

After hours of trying play the muliplayer and getting kicked from every single server in the world, I finally found what was the problem for me and you wont believe what the fix is.

What I did before this
-followed evenbalace.com instructions to update PB

-Unistalled PB rebooted and then re-installed using Battlefield 3 _install folder in my computer. It may be different on your computer the location of this folder but is basically the Battlefield 3 game folder in your computer.

-Used the Origin Repair Install option. Open Origin go to your game library, right click the game and click Repair Install.

-I did a combination of un-installing punkbuster, rebooted then, going to Origin and use the Repair Install option.

-Unistalled the game from Origin rebooted then re-downloaded and installed the game

-I had about 10 beers and 1 leg of chicken

-Got my shotgun and was thinking to shoot my computer.

-I went to campaing mode because I was convinced it was EA/DICE/Punbuster internal problem. Navigated to gameplay in the menu and found that punkbuster was not allowed

-Put the shotgun away.

-Started playing BF3
I hope this works for you as well. GOOD LUCK!
