Sims 3 Error: Unable to connect to origin

★★★★ Newbie

I have tried everything. I have disabled AVG, turned off firewall, downloaded and installed the superpatch. Moved my two files to my desktop. everything that is suggested! I don't understand what the heck is going on. But i paid money for seasons and it is making me sick to my stomach.

I uninstalled and tried to reinstall. It let me install the base game and now it wont let me install any of my expansion. if it connected to origin to download the base game why can't i download the expansions? i have updated with the manual patch.

Do you get an error message while downloading ?

 

Check the folder in programs\Origin\Sims3 (or programs(x86)\Origin\Sims3) if you find any install folders or files.
