I had the same "PNKBSTRB.EXE HEARTBEATS STOPPED" problem during the game (AAO running fullscreen, never tabbed to windows).

None of the suggestion above worked for me.

The problem is related to PNKBSTRB.EXE process priority, so I installed the process tuning utility ProcessLasso and set armyops, pnkbstrA and pnkbstrB to realtime priority.

Problem solved Cheesy Grin

I ran into the same "heartbeats stopped" error after the upgrade to AA 2.8.5. I'm running Windows Vista 64-bit.

The problem was that the Punkbuster services were trying to start from files that should have been in C:\Windows\System32, but instead had actually been installed in C:\Windows\SysWOW64.

The solution for me was to copy pnkbstra.exe, pnkbstrb.exe, and pnkbstrb.xtr from C:\Windows\SysWOW64 to C:\Windows\System32.
