So, about 5 months ago, I tried to play Sims 2 and my computer told me that the game files were corrupt and I needed to reinstall the whole thing. My computer then deleted ALL of the Sims 2 games from my hard-drive as Norton Antivirus said they were dangerous viruses. There was lots of swearing.
Anyway, after I calmed down I grabbed all my disks (yes, I still have all the disks and their boxes and the proof-of-purchase code sheets that came with them) and tried to install the core game. It was at this time I got an error stating the codes were no longer valid. I tried multiple times to install the game but still got the same message. Finally, I logged into Origin to send a help ticket and saw I had the "Digital" edition of Sims 2 as one of my purchased games. So, I hit install and waited. After the game installed, a message came up stating Origin was going to check to ensure the program loaded correctly. After 5 minutes it said the game had NOT loaded correctly, that the files were corrupt and it deleted everything it had just installed.
Rather than throw my computer through a window, I decided to try again in a few months. After all, classes were starting and I needed to focus on school work (hooray graduate studies!) Well, the school year is about to end and I have tried several times to install my Sims 2 games with the same results: the codes are "invalid" and the file from Origin is corrupt.
I REALLY want to play Sims 2. Can ANYONE help me find away to install my games?
