Iv tried a few things I seen other people said have worked on the internet aboutthe TS3 file etc.. but it hasnt helped.. is it over heating?! .. really annoying I love the Sims!!

Thank you
1. Go to Control Panel/System/Advanced/Performance Settings.

2. Go to the Data Execution Prevention tab. Click on "Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select" and press "Add." You will now add your Sims game, expansions and Stuff Packs to the DEP exception list. Copy-and-paste these "C:" locations in the spot where it says "File Name."

Sims 3 base game:
C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin\TS3.exe

Good luck
