Are you opening origin first so that it can make sure you're running the latest patch?

You need the new patch, tell it to fix your install and it'll patch.

*I had the same issue where i tried to update and it claimed up to date*

when you right click there should be an option to repair it. this will download the update and install it.

the punk buster file is in your bf3 folder

you shouldnt need to update PB if you can get the patch to install

update origin then try updating/repairing bf3 again. if that doesnt work youll have to reinstall bf3

another issue that i have run into is before trying to open bf3, with just origin open, if you have any unaddressed friend requests, ignore them all or at least respond to them. for some reason this was causing a similar issue with mine a while ago
