I can't download Sims3 correctly. I downloaded it ..

Question for The Sims 3

I can't download Sims3 correctly. I downloaded it on my computer once before with no problems and no errors while it downloaded. After I downloaded Sims3 the first time, I was going to go ahead and download The Sims3 Ambitions expansion pack and it downloaded just fine. So now I was going to go ahead and download Sims3 Town Life expansion pack but it wouldn't let me download without all these errors and I thought maybe we can't download anymore because we need a better tower, but I don't really know. So to try and fix it, I took off Sims3 and the Sims3 Ambitions expansion pack off my computer so that I could start all over again. But now it won't even let me download it. I forgot to add that when I was getting rid of Sims3 and Ambitions, I went ahead and deleted a few other little things that were downloaded on my computer like, "avast!" for more room on the tower..if that was the issue. I don't know what's wrong! It says there is an error occured on the file 'D:GameBinHelpPagesCommonimagesblueBullet.png'. Data error (cyclic redundancy check). (0x17) Help!! Please. (:

They said they already did......... Look through your finder for DDCACHE and delete the file (that's the file that's encrypted) It will automatically recreate itself, without the encryption. After you've done that, you should be good to go.
