@gamertagbobo Hi there,

 

The best way would probably to try to uninstall the Origin Client via Control Panels > Programs & Features first. Then re-download Origin from here: https://www.origin.com/en-ie/download

 

After the download, run the installer as administrator: http://help.ea.com/en/article/how-do-i-run-a-program-or-a-game-as-an-administrator/

 

Let me know how you get on.

 

Cheers,

Nils
