Try reinstalling Origin and make sure you don't have the EA Download Manager still on your Computer.
Follow these steps to remove any left over registry entries after uninstalling Origin: https://help.ea.com/article/manually-uninstalling-
Also make sure Java, Flash Player and WIndows are up-to-date
Please accept a solution if your issue is solved. XP is also appreciated.

You can bypass the Origin app and use the manual update found http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-upda
This will fix the issue.

I bought windows 8 computer and my game just wont load sometimes it says cant connect orgin and then sometimes i press the play button and it stops running as if i ever clicked on anything. this is so frustrating I did the updates manually and my computer is up to date.

I have been unable to connect to origin for the sims 3. I want to really just play the Supernatural version of the Sims 3 so I am looking for a solution because I have already had two computer people look into it and they can confirm it is not the firewall. All signs point to the launcher or program itself i have uninstalled and reinstalled origin the sims 3 and java but still no luck if anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated. Also this is my first time posting to anything on a forum so thank you in advance. I also know I should post something myself but i really have no idea how to navigate here. Again thank you ^^
