Ever since I installed Origin to enable me to play ME3, I have not been able to play The Sims 3. I uninstalled the files and downloaded them from Origin but it won't do the install. I also tried manually installing the game from the setup file and that gets to the user agreement page and then cuts out (it just stops doing anything). I am getting increasingly frustrated as The Sims 3 and the expansions used to work absolutely fine from the DVDs... until I got Origin.

It is possible that one of the programs (anti-virus, firewall etc.) on your computer is conflicting with Origin. You can find a list of possible "culprits" as well as instructions what to do about that here:
Please let us know if that helped you!
