Unwanted Expansion pack keeps getting reinstalled after uninstalling

★★★★ Novice

Origin keeps installing a pack I don't want to play.

 

Looking around, everything I have seen says the only way to uninstall a pack is to uninstall the game and then when re-installing unclick the pack/packs you don't want to reinstall. Cool, fine.

 

I've done that 3 times and after waiting 2-3 hours each time for the reinstall I get annoyed to find that I come back to play and Origin ended up adding that pack after I did the install. This last time I went through my settings and made sure I turned off auto updates, triple checked and made sure I clicked off the pack I don't want installed, came back to the computer and it wasn't installed, played a little. Came back later and it was installed again? 

 

Any ideas on why the pack keeps getting installed? I really don't like it (although I bought it because I thought I would) and it really effects my enjoyment in playing. Any assistance would be appreciated.

 

Thanks!

@kithandra There is a way you can just delete the game pack folder from your sims folder on your C drive. It's not in the documents folder. I had to do that for a pack I don't like to play. I googled how to delete or uninstall game pack and was able to find how to do it without uninstalling the whole game and reinstalling.

Hope that helps
