The Sims 3 Freezing at Startup

Hello, I'm frequently a new player to the Sims 3. (btw game is awsome). I was able to play the game just fine 2 days ago, until when yesterday I was zooming out to have a bird's view of my city it froze. Then when I decided to restart my computer and Start up the game again it started to freeze on the EA sign. I have no other choice but to turn off/turn on my computer again just because of that freezing. I have tried over 3 times and the results the same. I don't know why its freezing when I haven't done anything to the game. Please help me fix the problem. I wanna keep playing the Sims 3. 

Thank you.

Good to know I'm not the only one having this problem. Just hope we get help fast. I bought Sims 3 wanting to play it, not watch it freeze infront of my face. Lol
