Hello,

But after you quit the game, and start again, are the items there in buy mode?
That they don't remain listed as "installed" in the launcher doesn't mean much.

Hello,

You're getting a notice that the item was already installed right?
Its not uncommon for items to appear not installed in the launcher, and yet be installed. If they show up in game despite disappearing from the "installed" section in the launcher, it's really just a launcher problem, it's not very reliable.

Hello,

It doesn't fix itself. Just don't let it bother you.
If you're asking because it makes it annoying to install additional sims3packs, I can tell you that you can safely remove the sims3packs from the downloads folder. That's just a staging area.
That way, if you ever want to install other sims3packs, you'll know that everything under the "downloads" tab in the launcher needs to be installed.
