We have a few instances where an nForce software firewall is interfering with ME3 and Origin communicating with each other, even though Origin is still running. I am not saying this is exclusively a firewall problem, but it has been one that we have seen and been able to fix for some users.
Windows 7 64-bit on a 680iLT motherboard. I'm not running the Nvidia Nforce drivers at all - they're legendary for issues.
What's particularly galling is that I get the "Press Shift F1 for Origin" message and I can even bring up the Origin overlay in the game.
