So I have the Sims2 double deluxe game pack on my HP, which is running Windows 7. I've had the game as long as I've had the computer, which was purchased in 2009. Two weeks ago I noticed the launcher began freezing when trying to load, and last week it started giving me an error message. The first time it did it was immediately following a scheduled windows update, so I uninstalled the updates and it ran fine. Last Wednesday it did the same thing, only now the launcher loads with a blank window in the bottom stating that the page can't be loaded, then the launch window closes itself.
I also have SimCity 4 and it has no problem loading, so I'm at a loss. My game and all of its expansion packs are authentic and I have all of their install CDs, but the game won't load no matter which pack and CD I try to use. If anyone has any suggestions, they are welcome as this is my favorite game.
