@manda639 Moving this to tech for troubleshooting.

Is it any specific interaction (other than the gallery) ?

Could you try repairing the game through Origin ?

I recently redownload the sims 4 onto a new laptop (last week). It was working fine before July 8th update. First freeze was when I openned the gallery and tried the Spark'd tab, second freeze was trying to save a household from the gallery, third freeze I sent my sim to visit a sim and after preselecting 5 conversation interactions by the third it froze. I don't know if that helps.
