Could be a number of things affecting the your game.

1. Bad mod last installed or CC
2. Alt tabbing causes my sims to crash, simple fix, don't alt tab
3. Have you done anything to the game if so maybe remove it and run the game to see

No, what I meant was: was there a time when your game was working fine?
If so, what did you install/uninstall since?

So, what I'll suggest is this:
Go to My Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims
Take the Mod folder and move it to your desktop.
Does the game work fine then?

Hi

Try deleting the cache

Go to your game folder and delete
CasPartCache.package
compositorCache.package
scriptCache.package
SimCompositorCache.package

Shamrock, it works without Mods, but I want them.
Fields, I'll try, but will it delete my saves or something.

It won't, all it does is like your internet explore history, which you might do every so often when you get a issue with that, those cache files work in a similar way.

Also having read above, it seems it is a mod issue, have you updated to the latest version? Some mods might also not be compatable with the latest version.

What mods do you have that you do not want to get rid off?

Check that all your mods are up to date... That's if the Cache delete doesn't help.
For the Cache, delete both folders DCCache and DCBackup.

So, it's safe to delete DCCache and DCBackup? Because they are taking 4.5gb on my hard drive. All my mods are up-to date.

Hello,

DCBackup doesn't regenerate, those are your installed sims3packs, and likely what's taking up most of those 4.5 GB.

Well technically, you're right. The folder does regenerate, but it's contents don't.
