Frankly, I have no idea.
I have the same problem with my wife's computer since yesterday.
As she had some severe malware on her computer, I restored from an old backup.
Re-installed the Sims-4, everything worked fine.
Next day she started the computer and sims-4 asked for Origin.

I'm going to look at this problem tonight.
If I come up with a plausable reason for the above, I'll report.

Check your tray in C:/documents I had ALOT of items in there that were not house files all had current dates I have not added ANY current date cc to my game  , I think maybe some one figured a way to bug the game. I only added 3 houses to my game, but there were 100 and something bogus files in my tray!!!!!!! I"m no genious but shouldn't be anything in the tray but house files, I think lol never was before.

There should be so many files if you have houses you made and saved it to Library, same goes for Sims. Example: You made three story house and saved it to Library. In Tray folder you have file for each floor (three files), and one for whole house.

I solved my issue today, was my anti virus, added the origin. dll to my exceptions list. May work for you. I redownloaded the games and reinstalled them and before I tried to run it  I added all the origin.dll's the sims4 exe and the sims 64 exe to my exceptions list in my anti virus, disconnected from the internet and started the sims game it is up and running hope it helps you!

i added it to my antivirus exceptions but still says it needs origin. I guess i have to reinstall my games. Is there a way to reinstall them without losing gameplay and households?

Removing your installations will not affect the details of your game in the folder Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4
Also installing anew will keep your existing sims/households intact.

Hello and welcome to the forum @queerest,

I moved your topic to the correct section. That said, this type of problem can be very tough to solve, and unfortunately it is symptomatic of "modern" pirated games. Anti-virus/Anti-malware/Security software tends to aggressively purge cracked game files.

The first thing to look at is your main anti-virus program. Which locations are set up as your exclusions there ? What about 'specialties' of that program - does the software have the tendency to ignore your input, by e.g. purgijng cracked game files that are in your exclusions-locations ? 

What about your Windows Defender, are the exclusions set there correctly too ?

I've turned my anti-virus program off when ive tried to start sims 4. And i have all the files in the exclusion list like the instruction on here. I dont know about Windows defender. 

I dont know what you mean with the software ignoring my input

When your AV has placed the crack in quarantaine it is no longer accessible.
If you still have the original download in Winrar, turn off your AV, unpack it again and replace the crack in Game\Bin.
Then open your AV again and put the Game folder in exceptions.

You only need the crack for your highest installed expansion.

"The Sims 4.rar" is the one from Games4theworld.

Did you install Games4theworld's other items (in the past) too ? And in the following order:
Base game -> Get to Work -> Get together -> Ultimate fix.

RE-applying the Ultimate fix (last step) will be equivalent to re-applying the crack. But that will only ork, as said, if you correctly configure exclusions on your anti-virus software and Windows Defender too.

Sorry for the alte reply @queerest,

I haven't been posting a lot in the past couple of days. If you still need help with that...make sure again to check your Windows Defender and any other third-party anti-virus software, to see if the "exclusions" are set correctly.

And if you uninstalled the game, you will need to start over by re-installing the base game first, and then continuing with the Get to Work -> Get together -> Ultimate fix.
