Please be patient: the game takes a while to start.
You might be interrested in trying Game Booster by IObit.

Okay, let us try this:
Go to Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 and edit the Options.ini file. There, change the 'fullscreen' attribute'.
Then launch your game. It should be in windowed mode. Does it help?

This is not a good sign, but if your game can still run, I don't think it matters...

The "game publisher cannot be verified" error is a Windows error, so just click that you wan't to proceed nevertheless.
Please check that your game is up to date, that you applied the Ultimate Fix correctly (the last one), that you have the latest Store Fixes and that your graphic drivers are up to date.

You should not update via launcher. Please redo steps 2-4 of this guide again: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly.

Don't miss any steps. To apply the manual patch, simple run it.

Please clear the following caches in C:\Users\(your computer name)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3:

Create-a-Sim Cache: CasPartCache.package
Build/Buy mode cache: compositorCache.package
Mod or custom content cache: scriptCache.package
New Sims and skin cache: simCompositorCache.package
SimPort (maybe) and social features:socialCache.package
Look for a folder that says Thumbnails. Delete anything inside of it.
Look for WorldCaches and delete anything inside of it.

If you have downloaded sims and pets somewhere, you can delete downloadedsims.index from the folder "SavedSims".

I dunno what it is but for me I had same issues, Seems the new NRASS mods are causing it as I removed mods folder, worked, added back not worked, checked updated mods, still not work, removed NRASS mods, worked.

Strange but seems it conflicting,
