Sims 4 wont start up.

★★ Novice

When starting up the sims 4, I clicked on "run as administrator" by mistake and it opens up origin and all, but when I go to play sims 4 this message pops up and I dont know how to get rid of this message. I tried re-staring my laptop ad that did nothing. Any advice would be helpful.

Hi, that error message indicates an illegitimate copy of the game or Origin. However when I check your posting account I can see you have the game in good standing. 

Do you use a shared machine? Can you remove the RldOrigin software and try re-installing a copy of Origin from here?
