Origin keeps updating every time I turn my computer on

★★ Newbie

I wasn't sure if this goes with the Origin topic or the Sims 4 topic but either way I'd like it fixed and I'm sorry ifs it's placed in the wrong spot. Anyway, when ever I start my computer up Origin says it's updating. I let is finish every time but the next time I turn my computer back on, it starts running the same update again. I know the update is for the Sims 4 but when I start my computer it just says Origin updating. Then once that is done it opens my Origin account to show me the Sims 4 is updating. Once it's installed and updated it'll do the same things the day when I turn my computer back on, even though its did the same update yesterday. I just don'y know what to about this and I'm getting sick of it. Someone please help me. Thank you.

Easier way, try this:

 

Launch it as administrator. Right click and select "Run as Administrator".

 

It works for me.

The first step, updating your Origin client to the latest Beta version /top left Origin menu, Application Settings - General

 

The second step checked in Origin/Application Settings/Advanced/Safe Mod Downloading-checked Enable Safe Mod Downloading and do not forget make sure you are the administrator, run the setup file Origin with Admin rights and restart Origin.

I'm sorry but you confused me a little at this part "do not forget make sure you are the administrator, run the setup file Origin with Admin rights". I don't know how to be the admin/what you mean by admin. Could you please explain? Thank you.

Every time i turn my computer on its doing the same thing. So as soon as I turned it on not to long ago I let it updated and went to something else. When it was done it popped up for me to sign in, well I was in the middle of something and couldn't  yet so i closed it. I just did click on it to play it and it started updating again. This is so aggravating!! I would like for it to be fixed ASAP. So happy to see im not the only one that's having problems with this, I was starting to think it was my computer.

I just redownloaded the installer and reinstalled origin from there and that fixed my issue (which was it downloading an 'update' everytime origin launched but never actually updating.
