I have recently reinstalled my game only to have it successfully install and load, until I reach the neighbourhood screen that is. When I try to click on a lot to enter, the game crashes back to desktop. I've tried uninstalling completely and reinstalling, installing patches (not sure the right ones though, patches are new to me ) , deleting caches and even having my disk professionally cleaned. This forum is my last hope, may have to put my sims away for good ! Any help would be GREATLY appreciated !!
