Done Everything I Could, FRAME NEVER GOES AWAY

So I cleaned out my cache, repaired the game and even uninstalled the game but the frame around characters & objects in both, the gallery & packs tab, have a weird blur around the items. I never did and still don't have any cc or mods.

What do I do?
(Also, if you notice, only the first picture in the gallery is bugged, rest are fine.)

    I have mods and looked through my gallery and others and haven't seen this. Is it just the one picture doing it? Best I can say is report it to the Bugs HQ. Could be your graphics card maybe?

    I just checked and it's not showing up that way for me :neutral: I'm not sure what would be causing it.
    Sorry I couldn't help much!

    It's always the first picture of anything uploaded on the gallery UNLESS it is a custom thumbnail. The thing is, things used to be fine before. Stopped playing around September 2017 then started playing again around a month and a half, ever since, I had that issue.

    Hello
    Try resetting your sims 4 folder and see if that helps. To do that, move your sims 4 folder ( that is in Documents -Electronic Arts - then the sims 4 folder is there ) to the desktop. Then start the game, and a new sims 4 folder will be generated. Exit the game and then copy back the "options.ini" or " options " file and the "saves" , "screenshots" "tray" "custom music " and "mods" folders from the desktop sims 4 folder to the new sims 4 folder, replacing the new generated file/ folders with the old file/folders from the desktop sims 4 folder.
    Then test to see if the issues remain.

    If I did everything I could to troubleshoot an application issue and it still persists, I would look at %appdata% type that in Windows+R and look for cache folder in there usually inside Local or Local/Roaming folder, maybe delete origin / sims 4 folder in there, but be warned though your origin credential might reset and have to manually relogging in again.

    FOUND THE SOLUTION. IT TOOK ME BY SURPRISE SINCE IDK WHY THOSE TWO ARE RELATED BUT IT'S THE ONE (AND OMG I AM SO HAPPY).

    Guess why it does that. It's because I am using my mobile's hotspot to connect to the internet. The router works fine though. :|
