Sim's 3 update

★★★★ Newbie

Ever since updateing my game to the recent patch I have been unable to play my game for any longer than 5 minuets without it crashing and that's if it decided to load as I just get a black screen most of the time that then comes up with a "not responding" message. HELP!?
