Manually uninstall Sims if using origin.

Next, Go to Program Files/Origin Games/The Sims 3/

Right click Sims3Setup and choose to run it as administrator.

Once it has installed for to Origin Games/Sims/Game/Bin

If there is a file named Sims3Launcher.ex_ change the name to Sims3Launcher.exe do the same if there is a file named TS3.ex_.

Now right click on Sims3Launcher and run it is administrator.
