Sims 3 won't launch

★★ Novice

Unable to start game

service initialization failed (0x024e424f)

I restored the system to my last download, which had nothing to do with sims, and my sims game starting not launching anymore

When my sims 3 use to launch it would just crash after I painted a wall or after like 15~ minutes it would crash

Please help me with both problems
