How to properly uninstall Games4theworld Sims 4?

Post by missmani09 on Thu 25 Dec 2014, 17:50

I uninstalled using setup installer, however the folders still remain in my documents file. Did I properly uninstall the game? 
Or should I just delete those folders?

Hi there, missmani09, and welcome to the Games4theworld Forum! Smile

To uninstall the game completely, you should have used a tool like Your Uninstaller! Pro, that you can get from our downloads website here:
http://www.games4theworld.org/downloads.html

Removing it via the Setup will leave some leftover folders and registry keys, as you already saw. One thing you can try is to download that program, and see if The Sims 4 still appears on the list. Then, you can uninstall it using Super Mode, that will delete everything related to it.

If it doesn't appear, however, then those may need to be removed manually. Are you planning to reinstall the game? Or will you just leave it at that?

Hello there,

Side note: remember to use Your Uninstaller's "Super Mode", to make sure everything gets removed.

Good luck and please let us know the result!

Clean Uinstall The Sims 4 problem :(

Post by FleurLaFleur on Fri 30 Jan 2015, 04:13

Hi...I have the same problem and I'm trying to download "Your Uninstaller Pro" via the link but there are no seeds. Is there anywhere else I can get this program from that is safe for my PC please?
I am trying to uninstall The Sims 4 and I'm on my laptop which uses Windows 8.
I've already tried to uninstall but I keep getting a pop up saying "Could not update the .ini file C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Games\Bin\RldOrigin.ini. Verify that the files exists and that you can access it."
Help Please Sad

Normally, you are supposed to open a new thread for your issues, but as for the program you are talking about, try downloading at different times of the day. Some of the older downloads might not have so many seeders, and those people seeding will only turn on their computers (and seed) at certain times of the day only.

As for your other problem, please see my post here:

Good luck !

Hi, 

I also want to completely uninstall The Sims 4. I already deleted the The Sims 4 folder under C:\Program Files (x86) but I want to make sure nothing is left behind as I am trying to install a legit TS4 base game (and I don't want EA blocking my origin account on which I have all TS3 games + TS4 base game (all legit)). Currently I am downloading Your uninstaller! Pro and I want to know if I do as @SeoY said will everything be deleted?

Update: in Your uninstaller! Pro was one "The Sims 4" file which I clicked and was uninstalled (via origin on Your uninstaller! Pro). Now I am waiting for G4TW The Sims 4 game to download completely so I can install it again.
