Unable to Login to Origin

★★★★ Novice

I've been unable to login to Origin since Monday.


Receiving this error message:


"An unknown error has occurred. Please restart Origin and try again."


I do this many times and nothing happens.


If I try to launch SimCity, I receive this error message:


"Error communicating with Origin.  Please check that Origin is online."


I've reset my Origin password as well.


Origin version: Version - 218578

Your suggestions did not help.  The issue has not been solved.  "Customer Service" contacted, but my expectations of a solution are low.
