This is because you must run the game from an administrator account on your pc.  I wish I could point you to the docuement from Punkbuster, but their site and forum are being upgraded right now.  Just go to your control panel, and to users, and make sure your account is set to "administrator", this should take care of that problem.

Here is the FAQ that talks about having to be an admin. PunkBuster  It also says that some spyware will disable certain admin functions and will prevent PB from running properly.
