Hello,

Look at this here:  http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

And then do the steps 2, 3 and 4. This basically means: apply the "manual patch" first, and then apply the "Ultimate fix" (it's enough to use the files in the #crack-folder of the Ultimate fix).

I did already manually patch it and i was waiting for the ultimate fix to download. Hopefully that works, although i have to wait a along time for it to finish.

Can you try another browser, like Google Chrome ?

Nope everything works currently. Although since its the  sims that's probably not going to last.
