    go to http://www.thesims2.com

    In the upper right corner of the page are 3 cubes that represent "Help",
    hover over that then click on "Patches"

    Download either The Sims 2 CD or The Sims 2 DVD patch depending on your
    media type (if you have 1 disc, it's DVD, else get the CD version)

    Download the patch, run it. Once finished try the game again.

    If it still does not work, right-click on The Sims 2 icon and choose "Run as
    Administrator", see if that helps.

    If it still does not work, respond here and include your system specs or
    make/model.

    I say just get rid of it. Its just a waste of space. It takes up 2+ Gb. I had
    that very same proble. Except mine would freeze when it was loading a saved
    game. Then the thing that says "Sims 2 has stoped working" comes up. So heres
    my advice, get rid of it.

    What size hard drive are you using? I just got a 320gig for $40 the other
    day. If any new system doesn't have enough room for a 2gig game, damn where
    do you buy your systems from?

    If a game like Sims 2 is crashing on your system there's something
    (probably) messed up with your system.

    Latest patches for Sims 2, download the patch for the latest expansion you
    own and run it (as administrator), then try the game again.
