Hello,

Are you using mods? If you are, disable them for the moment.
If you're not, try this:
Go to My Documents\Electronic Arts and drag&drop the The Sims 3 folder on your desktop. See if you can start a new game, and save it. If you can, copy your saves folder back to My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 and see if both your save games work, and if you can start a new game.

Hello,

So you (re)moved the "The Sims 3" folder from Documents\Electronic Arts and then the game told you to reinstall the game?

yep...

//EDIT

ahha i forgot about some things i tried programming ages ago, a
data logger i uses sims 3 to test it, and the logger had my personal
"self-destruct" where it kills itself and encrpts all files around it if
you move or edit it...now i have moved it and once again i can make new
games however... if i try and play old games itnow crashes, thats quite
upsetting as i have an immortal dynasty and one game which has run for
17 generations

Hello,

That sounds like the kind of crash you'd expect after getting the unofficial game modification error when you started the game. That could be fixed quite easily by applying the fix.

Hello,

It's kind of odd the game asked you to reinstall in the first place. Please contact me via the Forum's chatbox when you see me online on the Forum.
