I keep randomly getting kicked for "Punkbuster: Heartbeats Stopped"

I've read where people say it could be related to heat problems with either the CPU or the GPU... Sometimes it kicks me right after I get in, and sometimes I can play for an hour or two before it does this.... I just got kicked and had been playing for over an hour and my GPU Temp was 65c. (Im running a XFX GTX 285 black edition) Is 65c hot or is this a normal temp under load for this card?

Anyone know what it could be?

no problem with the temp, go to this directory c:\windows\system32 and deleted this file: PnkBstrB.exe, reboot the computer and it will download and install it, tell me if it helps

That file is not in the folder.. I even searched for it with no results.

You may have something running in the backround that is hurting it. Stop all of the unneeded startup programs and disable antivirus next time you try punkbuster...
