How to fix the Sims 4 (Problems with getting Origin not running message) for latest update

Post by HelloLove98 on Mon 31 Aug 2015, 02:06

So I just figured out the problem with my game and the reason why it wasn't playing, and I learned that it was my antivirus Windows Defender (Windows 8.1).

So here's a three-step way to solve the issue easily:

1. Turn off your antivirus
2. Re-install the update fix
3.Turn antivirus back on.

I don't know if this is the issue for EVERYONE, but I do know that the ultimate fix does get mistaken by antivirus as malware (WHEN IT REALLY ISN'T)

Tell me if this fixed it for you, and enjoy playing Smile


Mod edit: moved to the right section.

I knew it was my antivirus bc Windows Defender would always give me a notification telling me that it had detected malware as soon as I start extracting the files into the programs folder. 

After I did that I tried again and issue was resolved Smile
