Ok, my computer totally is dead and I am trying to use my hubby's, not sure if his computer laptop is crap for running the sims. Kinda scared it is, it's been awhile since I couldn't out why, something was happening. I forgot, what does it mean when your launcher keeps saying launcher not working windows is trying to see what's the problem or something like that??? I am totally freaking out right now, head spinning trying to get things on this computer !!!!!

Ahhh don't panic sweetie! I'm sure we'll get it running eventually!

The only thing is, there's so many different things that could be! If the launcher isn't working and you're only getting that message and no error code then it could be anything!

We'll figure it out though!

First things first lets check the computer can actually run the sims - go here: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/intro.aspx and either type in the sims 3 or choose it from the drop down list. Go through the steps and it'll tell you whether or not you can run the game on that computer.

See what it says and we'll go from there!

((I got your pm hun!))

Hmmm, I don't think there's a lot you can do without paying for an upgrade on your processor, but you have 2GHz so you can't be that far off!

Is it running at all if you disable custom content and take out your mods folder? (just for now to test)

If you've got expansion or stuff packs installed you could try uninstalling them for now and try running with just the base game?

I'll have a dig around and see if there's anything else I can find out there, but try with just the base game and no cc and see if you can get it going at least :)

So got up this morning and fired up the hubbys old computer and found out my problem on the sims it was the cfg file. I didn't have it saved as resource.cfg, I had it saved as resource and that is it. It mattered that much, LOL! Well, so far my launcher is not acting the way it did yesterday, computers can be sooo weird. So I was able to put CC in game and game still running, yes with a little bit of a lag. But, this was excepted since my specs. are behind, so will have to watch everything carefully and can only run the base game for now. I am not complaining though, I can still do so much, when it comes to creating ya know. Huggles CB

LOL I don't think it'll do any harm to delete them - They just waste space! Like CB said they just regenerate all the time, so I turn off my internet while I play haha! They're not getting to me with stupid ads and shop mode!

I know this is kind of closed but I just remembered Crinrict's tutorial explaining how to get rid of the featured items images and this one explains how to stop them loading again etc!!
