I turned off my antivirus and my wifi whenever I install Sad

Origin must in no way be in action on your computer when starting the Sims 4.
(Not in the background and not off-line either)
Check the Taskmanager for anything that is related to Origin and close it.

Hello and welcome to the Forum,

Although parts of the guide here may be slightly outdated (I am thinking of re-vamping it, though):

It should still give you a first impression on what to do. Note: simply "turning off" anti-virus programs isn't going to work. You also have to take into account Windows Defender which will turn itself on by default in Windows 10, when you de-activate your main anti-virus. And you have to consider that some anti-virus programs simply continue working even after you turn them "off".

I know this is very difficult to do, but there isn't too much else we can suggest. The cracked TS4 is not easy to handle unfortunately.
