If you were using the Origin installer from the disc, please uninstall Origin again and then go to http://www.origin.com/download and get the latest release version of the Origin client. Run the installation as administrator (right-click and select Run as administrator), then launch Origin again and let us know if it works now.

Hey guys. Fix is rather simple. 

1) Manual Un-install Origin. Use Revo or something simmilar to clear up left over files and reg keys.

2) Download Origin Installer www.Origin.com

3) Do not install to defualt location. Create a new Folder, Origin 2 or something simmilar under Program Files X86. 

4) Install to the new location. 

    The Default directory, is corrupted for some reason. Changing the install location fixes it.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your advice.  I had downloaded two Sims 4 stuff packs and couldn't for the life of me get Origin to download them.  I'd restarted my laptop and account so many times, uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail.  Then I saw your message about using Revo (I'd never heard of such programs) and it fixed my problem straightaway.  Now I have the content I paid for successfully downloaded.  Thank you very much for your fantastic fix!
