Running  game on windows 7

Hi I just got my Sims 3.   I've been having a problem creating a family on the Sims , it takes forever to load the  screen.  I can leave the room for  10 minutes  and come back  and nothing hasn't appear yet but the screen says  entering household . The first time I got the Sims 3 to work  creating my sim it froze I think but the character was moving and the wheel was spinning  and I couldn't click on anything .
