Game wont work at all and have to redowmnload origin every time

★★★★ Novice

Hi everyone, i have been playing sims ever since it came out. Now everything was fine but for the past few months i have been having a few issues.
1. When going to load the sims 4 it would load, then minimise itself, and no matter what i did couldn't maximise the bar or load the game.
2. When i found out that i could fix it within origin it would never give me the option to repair the game or any option to fix it. So after all this i had found that i needed to redownload origin and i could repair the game from going into the game library and going into the options that can be used to repair the game.
Everything was working for a little while there wasn't having that many issues etc, but then the old issues had started to resurface (as explained above), but what im finding what im having to do is, every time when i go into sims 4 it wont work at all, i then have to redownload origin every single time, then the game needs repaired every single time, and sometimes it wont work at all.

@erinlive  Try clearing Origin's cache and uninstalling "the hard way," then reinstalling.  This should get rid of all residual Origin files.  Hopefully the newly installed Origin won't give you the same issues.

I don't work for EA. I'm just trying to help fellow players with their games.
