Origin Can't Download Sims 3, error: 131086:0

★★★★ Newbie

When I try to download The Sims 3, it downloads as usual, but when it reaches 88%, it simple says "pausing download" without the option for me to restart it or anything (visible in the picture). The only way I can start the download again is by logging out and logging back in; however, it starts back again at 13% and goes back to 88% and repeats the process as stated above.

I have tried all the standard actions to and rectify this problem, but they have been to no avail. I have added origin to the fire wall, run as administrator, etc. etc.

Any help would be much appreciated as I am extremely excited to finally get to play this game.

 

Thanks in advance Standard smile
