@crinrict I use AVG, but I've never had any problems with it before.

The game boots up fine, and I can play a saved game, literally the only issue is mods and custom content won't stay enabled since the latest patch update

@Nininora quick update, I have added the exceptions to my antivirus, which seems to have done the trick. Still annoying though

Every Update Disables Mods/Gallery?

★★★ Newbie

After every update my mods won’t re-enable and the gallery objects won’t show up. I have to restart my game every single time (as in create a back up and re-upload all of my saves). It’s so annoying. Some of my saves break every time and I lose a bunch of content. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

TS4 updated now I can't turn mods back on

★★ Novice

Trying to get some help for TS4. Forum wouldn't let me post in it's proper forum.

TS4 just updated and I can't switch my mods back on. I have tried deleting my Options.ini file to reset everything, yet the game stays stuck in this loop of "The game has updated mods turned off". 

Any idea of what to do is appreciated
