ok so this will be my last post and hopefull will help others too in the future....my problem as i mentioned in the other mesasges i couldn't find it no matter the solutions proposed or the help from the EA....my last resort was to reinstal windows....before doing so i tryed to instal DAI in my old laptop...like 3 years old...and the game started instantly...so i just reinitialized my pc to reinstal the windows...the same copy that was cached in the pc when i first bought it...just to be sure i found some saves in my old laptop which predated the DAI deluxe edition release date...which i put in place of the newly installed game's save folder....and as antivirus i stil lhave the preinstalled norton....now my game prefectly started on steam and origin as well...thou i can't pinpoint the problem,i can't say if it was the reinstalation of windows or the old save folder with the old profiles....so as i used the extreme method to get the game going hope one of my steps could help you guys if need! thx everyone for your time and for trying to help me !

@Achnologhya My guess would be your system restore mucked something up. I would be careful about doing things like that in future, unless they're necessary. Glad you got everything working again! Standard smile

@Achnologhya The problem with pre-built computers (and many laptops) is they come pre-installed with a lot of useless bloatware (such as Norton),  likely in the hope that you will purchase the paid version. Just because a piece of software is pre-installed on a computer doesn't mean it's good or necessary for the computer to run. These programs can cause issues, or can clash with other programs you installed (such as games).

@Achnologhya 

The fact that you couldn't disable things in msconfig was heavily indication of an issue in Windows itself, as DAI and Origin shouldn't have that ability without major glitch.  And as @Leora85 said, a system restore point isn't a perfect action, as it is overwriting many things and all it takes is one hickup for any number of reasons and you have anything from minor annoyances to full crash of the system.  Now system restore points are set up to minimize this, but it can still happen, and since your issue started after one, then likely it was involved. 

 

Basically something in Windows got glitched, and you fixed it probably the best way for your system since you had fairly little installed.  It would really hurt on my system, with the amount of stuff I have and some of it not available anymore, we will not talk about how long my Windows 7 upgraded to Windows 10 operating system has been in continuous use......shhhhhh.

The Rapport service by IBM, is used for online banking and also a known interference with DAI.  So you may have had that as original issue or the issue with DAI, and then the restore point messed up in weird way and stopped you being able to disable select services.  

 

Glad you can play, feel free to come back if issues return, of it you wish to help others.
