Sims 4 and 3

★★★★ Novice

I just got another pc so I reinstalled the games to the computer and its like the game won't even load unless the ea folder is in the orgin games folder in the programs folder and then I can't use my custom content, it won't load in Sims 3 or Sims 4. I'm pretty sure the ea folder should just be in regular document right? Something is off and I don't know how to fix it. Not to mention every time I pull up the game (when ea in origin game folder) the top of the screen flickers in Sims 3 and 4 and I know I can fix it with the setting but the settings never allow me to change it and stay  the same every  game. Launch. Can anyone help me.

The second game folder (with the mods folder inside) will be created in the Documents only after the game is turned on. If you have a problem with enabling the game, check if your anti-virus program or Windows Defender does not block the game.
If this is not the case could you post your Computer's DxDiag?
