Hello,

Did you re-boot the computer after un-installing ?

Try this: google for "CCleaner" - if you still don't have it - and install it. Run it and let it check your computer. If it does find anything, let it do the "cleanup", and then RE-BOOT the computer.

After the re-boot, try re-installing The Sims 3 again. Good luck !

Hello again,

Please keep us updated ! Smile 

The "corrupt(ed)" basegame you tried installing before, was that Games4TheWorld's basegame ? Normally, it's rather rare that a game gets "corrupted" on its own.


For the future, try backing up the download in at least one other place, like a USB flashdrive or an external hard-drive. Smile
