Sims 3 won't load!!

★★★★ Newbie

I would really LOVE to play the Sims 3, but for some reason the game won't load. It starts up on the launcher as normal but sadly sends me to a never ending loading page Frown I'm not sure what is wrong with it. I think my Norton may have blocked it (my virus protector) if anyone knows something pleeeeease help me, I really miss my Sims.

Alright, the first I would recommend is that you reinstall the game, and make sure no antivirus is blocking the Sims 3 executable.

yes, you must uninstall the sims 3 and any of the expansions you might own, as for the security, i personally do not use norton, but nortons website has lots of info on that.


good luck! Standard smile
