Hi becca25co,

 

Normally you would just log out and completely exit Origin and then click on Start > Control Panel  > Programs and Features > and then double click on Origin.

 

Should you still have issues afterwards, this is how you can manually uninstall: https://help.ea.com/article/manually-uninstalling-origin

 

After you are done uninstalling, you can re-install the game by visiting this page: http://www.origin.com/download

 

Cheers,

Nils

I did exactly all of that, and it always comes up with the error message: Failed- Download Error. When i clicked for more info, it said that it meant simply to try again later. ive been trying and that is always what i get. am i doing something else wrong??

lsjaboe, can you elaborate at what stage exactly you are encountering this error? Is it when clicking on download on the webpage or when first starting the Origin client after installing it?
