Re-download the Ultimate fix and try again, your download of it must have messed up.

i've tried to redownload it three times since the original error and it downloads up to between 10.5MB and 20.75MB (out of 54.5MB) but doesn't go any higher than that. could there be something wrong with the download or is it more likely my computer?

Hello,

Probably your computer, the download seems fine.
Are you using a download manager? If yes, turn it off, please.
If not, try a different browser.

it downloaded fully with firefox instead of chrome, but when i tried to drag the .exe and .dll files into the game bin, i got two winrar diagnostic errors - "the system cannot find the file specified" and "no files to extract", both based out of local\temp\the_sims_3_fix_rar.

sorry about this, i just don't want to ruin anything without checking with you guys first!

Hello,

Try changing Firefox' download folder to the Desktop temporary.
After that, re-download the Fix again. It should download to your Destkop.
Let is finish and then right-click on the downloaded .rar file and choose "Extract to 'The_Sims_3_Fix'..." (Something like that).
It'll create a new folder on your Desktop with the extracted files. Does that work?

Temporary turning off your anti-virus software might work as well.
