Re: Sims 4 Freezing

@fjordgirl  Please try playing in a clean user data folder.  Move your entire Sims 4 folder out of Documents\Electronic Arts and onto your desktop.  When you launch the game, a clean folder will spawn with no content.  Don't add anything to this folder; just start a new save, play for a bit, and see whether the game freezes again.  If it doesn't, then the issue is something in your old user data folder, and you'll need to sort through the content to figure out what.  Let me know whether you need help with this process.

 

If you get another freeze even in a clean folder, please run a dxdiag and attach it to a post.

@fjordgirl  The Sims 4 folder is in Documents\Electronic Arts.  Open a File Explorer window and choose Documents in the left panel; this usually takes you to the Documents folder stored on your hard drive.
