Loading into Houses/Community Lots

Q: Loading into Houses/Community Lots

My system is Windows XP. I have both the Seasons and Open for Business expansion packs and a lot of extra downloaded material for my Sims 2 game. Recently, I have not been able to get into the houses or community lots in my game. I will click on a house or lot and it just keeps loading without ever taking me into the lot/house- 20 minutes later and I have still not been loaded into the lot or house. I think maybe the problem could be some of the custom content that I have downloaded, as 3 of them show up with an ! mark next to them (like the icon I have for this message) when I click on "enable custom content", but I don't know for sure if this is the problem. Could it be anything else? How do I delete only those three custom content additions?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey all -- I'll try to be concise.

In the House, there is Spectrum internet which should be about 200 Mbps wired. There is a router and an access point. In the house there are several devices, both wired and wireless. Both types of connection approach 200 Mbps (for wireless, this is assuming you are within a reasonable radius of the AP). So far, so good.

But -- I live in the Apartment about 80-100 ft away, up a bit in elevation as well as on the second floor. There is something like a 10ft differential between our flat and the room in the House.

To get internet in our Apartment, I have an EnGenius ENH202 (which advertises speeds up to 300 Mbps) configured as an AP w/static IP blasting towards our window from the House. It is behind a window, so the signal must pass through two windows currently.

Internet access via EnGenius is both unstable and slow. I understand speeds will fall off, but I cannot get above 20 Mbps on any device and usually range from 7-13. As to stability, the internet drops out often, EnGenius disappears from list of WiFi network access points, etc. Interestingly, sometimes we can connect to the Spectrum 2G network more easily and reliably than EnGenius, though not always and not for long. EDIT: For example, the speed test just had EnGenius at 16 Mbps and Spectrum 2G at 33 (sudden, new high). I could handle the lower-than-advertised speeds (probably user error, I know), but the instability is killer.

Alright, so, does anybody else have this problem?
When I send either a family or one sim to a community lot, the screen loads onto the picture with the taxi, the background loads up using the flashing pictures that goes across, by the end of this the lot is usually fully loaded and plays straight away.
Although now, the screen continues to load for up to 5 minutes, and even then it doesn't load!

A:Sims - screen freezing when loading community lot

Hello there. First question.. Do you have any downloaded custom content for your game?
If you do, your problem may lie there. What you have to do is remove all custom content then try running the game. If that didn't correct the problem you might have to reinstall the game. You can make a back-up copy of your neighborhoods since you said there was no problem with those. HTH

Hi,
I have a folder with 3100 images, set to display large icons, sorted by date.

Each time I come back to this folder, windows will take like 8 or 10 seconds to load them all.
I don't think it rebuilds thumnails, which would take even much longer, no it seems it reloads and resorts.

Anyway to speed this up so it will load instantly ?

Thanks,

That sounds normal Brakkar. 8-10 seconds is fairly quick for that many images. I have a folder of images with sub-folders of images which takes 3-4 seconds to open, but it has less than 1000 files.

I'm on a Sony Vaio laptop running Windows 7. I have AVG free 2014 as my active antivirus, but occasionally run Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, CCleaner, and Temporary File Cleaner to keep things running smoothly.
I've had this issue for a while now. AVG recently picked up a few trojan viruses on a scan last week, and I thought my issues would have been resolved, but alas, they have not.
Also, before I begin, I want to note that I'm having these issues only on this laptop, even though I have another laptop computer, an iPad, and iPhone that I use the same wifi connection on.
So here's my issue. I'll get on my computer and pull up Chrome. I wait for the wifi to connect. Sometimes it connects without a problem, other times I sit and watch the little blue circle as it loads and loads, then tells me that it was unable to connect. I'll disconnect and reconnect, and usually that works. Whenever I'm using the internet, the wifi randomly disconnects. It can happen as often as every 5-10 minutes.
I've scanned with everything I can think of, I've unplugged and restarted the modem countless times....I honestly do not know what to do. I don't know if this is a virus or if there's something wrong with my computer's devices or....I honestly don't know what to do, so please, please help.
Thank you in advance,

Hello wolf, and welcome to Sevenforums!

Perhaps your hardware isn't working. I'd start with the memory. Remove all but 2 GB of RAM from the computer and see if it boots. If it doesn't, replace the RAM with the RAM you have removed. If it boots, check each RAM using MEMtest: RAM - Test with Memtest86+ - created by Jonathan_King

However, unable to add printer located in house 2 from computers in house 1, either by network location, or by shared printer via USB
you CAN see the printers when you go to network "Add printers" but everything always crashes on final add part of printer installation.

Hi there,
I've got a house with thick stone walls and am trying to get some connectivity in my basement. I've given up on wifi signal reaching down there, so I bought a homeplug ethernet kit to get a connection from my wireless router which is upstairs to my desktop PC in the basement.

I just bought a nas which I'd like to connect in the basement though...

What's the best way to connect more than one ethernet device to the single ethernet output of the homeplug kit? I have a spare wireless access point running ddwrt but I'm worried about ip address clashes/issues with the main router. Should I just buy a switch instead?

would love any advice

Ok so I moved into a house beside my parents'. The network I set up at my dad's is a Linksys Wireless Router and the pcs are connected via other linksys wireless usb adapters.

In my house I am able to grab onto his wireless signal with just a usb adapter plugged into my pc. And my question is Should I just buy usb adapters for my pcs or is there a way to use another router over here to manage my connections (so i can hard wire this computer room for free instead of buying multiple usb adapters.)

I searched and read that routers can be connected in series by linking them together but can they be ran in series by just using their wireless signal and keep the IP addresses different? And set the main router up for DHCP and turn my routers DHCP off?

My ex husband lives about 60 feet from his parents home. They have a modem and router. I know the router is Netgear. Not sure about modem. They use Windows 7 on a tower with a router for the printer I guess. When I visited my ex, I brought my windows 7 Toshiba laptop and it worked perfectly in the 2nd house after his father gave me the SSID code. It worked in the rooms in the other house closer to the parents house. So my ex asked me buy him a computer like mine. I got a Toshiba satellite (new model, non touch screen) but it has windows 8. He tried to give it to his dad for fathers day. The man is over 75 and doesn't believe a laptop is a computer, wanted no part of it. But my ex does want it. If his dad will turn on the router like he did for me, a Netgear, will the new Win 8 Toshiba even be compatible.

Ex is 57 and living in their 2nd house due to the economy and he doesn't want to press his dad to even keep the router on. His dad believes that the router has to be unplugged everytime there is a storm since he has had one computer fried by lightning( which I believe could have been avoided by disconnecting his computer not the modem and/or router}.

He is even afraid to approach Dad to test the new Win 8 computer, but he will since I told him he cannot put a 2nd modem in the 2nd house on the same phone line. Any advice would be wonderful. They live in rural Nevada. There are no computer stores to go to within 100 miles, and I don't want to buy him a router ... Read more

A:2 houses one phone line DSL windows 8

Not sure what all you are asking, so may not be giving complete answers.

A modem would work for your ex if and only if he subscribes to an ISP for internet access.

Windows 8 in general will be compatible with the router, but no guarantees. Windows 8 seems to struggle with WEP encryption even more than Vista and Windows 7 so that could be an issue. And some wireless adapters and some routers still struggle to communicate when WPA2 encryption is used. So, the Windows 8 PC should communicate with the router just as well as your laptop does, but no guarantees can be given.

If there is a problem with lightning, as there often is in rural areas, I advise unplugging the modem, router and computers (or have them on a good surge protector) and disconnect the modem from the phone line or cable service when lightning threatens.

We have a ranch in the rurals. There are 2 houses situated within a few hundred yards of each other and another one up on a hill a little distance. That one is probably on it's own, but I was hoping there might be a reasonable possiblity of a network between the two houses that are close together.

I'm not sure we qualify for dsl - here you have to be within 3 miles of their equipment. That leaves us with a direcway satellite system probably.

Suggestions for setting up some kind of network to share the satellite internet between at least the two houses? One guy was suggesting we dig a trench and lay pipe between all three buildings and run network cables for a wired system. Is that feasible? Yes, we have our own tractor and trenching equipment. What kind of pipe would shield and protect such a cable?

Okay, here is the problem or situation. I have 13 buildings I need to get wireless access for, they are guest houses for people on holiday (vacation). They are all close by to each other, some joined on, they are 2 floors each. I don't know the mass area of the place, but imagine 13 small houses close by to each other in a sort of rectangle. Maybe 300 metres from office to furthest away building. Pure guess. The reception is where the main wireless BT Business Hub/router is. Sadly this isn't in the middle, and is one of the corners. Meaning access is cutting off those over the far end, especially those with only G rated equipment. Even N range only gets 1 bar on the opposite side of the same end, and I doubt there is any hope for the buildings at the other end of the rectangle.

So what is best to do to get total reception coverage ? I have tried 85mbps homeplugs, and they work up to a point, but cut off half way round. Making me think either the other half is on a separate power supply or too far away. I have thought about installing a wireless homeplug in every building, but that would cost close to 1000 for N rated wireless homeplugs. Also this doesn't help those on a different power supply. I just have to think of a way to wireless the whole place for G rated laptops (as most people still only have G rated modems in their laptops).

I live in a little gated mews of six houses in London. Fortunately, my neighbours are all awesome and we get on really well.

Currently, we all have separate broadband, phone and TV packages arranged with various ISPs, but I think this is inefficient. My challenge is to find out if it would be possible for the six households to behave like a business and get a single shared broadband line that we could all connect to wirelessly. This should allow us to get a much higher bandwidth for a lower price. I am not worried about phone line or TV at this stage, as we can't really share them.

All six houses are in an L shape around a courtyard. The greatest distance between houses is about 20 metres.

If we were to collectively get something like Virgin Media's 100mb Fibre Broadband, (http://store.virginmedia.com/broadband/compare-broadband/100mb.html) would it be possible to set up a powerful wifi router in one of the houses, or outside in a dedicated shelter, that all houses would be able to connect to without suffering range or signal strength problems?

If so, what router would you use? Would you set up wireless bridges in every house? And how would it be best secured?

Any other tips much appreciated!
 

A:Challenge: Set up shared wireless broadband for 6 houses

Contact one or more ISPs and see if they offer a service (probably business class) for that type of setup. If they offer that service they probably also have support for getting started.

If you do get a service like that and need more help from us please include a link to the ISP's terms of service.

As the title states, I am want to set up a single ADSL connection, using 1 router across 6 apartments. The apartments are 2 floors and from the top they look like this

The Router is on Apartment 1.

Between apartment 1 and 2, 3 and 4, and 5 and 6 is a normal cement wall.

Between 3 and 4 is Cement and stone, so are the outside walls of each house.

I was thinking of doing it simple and using 3-4 range extenders such as the Linksys RE1000. From what i searched on the internet, and what the documentation states, the signal will get bottle-necked for the last house due to the RE1000 giving half of the bandwidth.

Quote from Linksys FAQ:
7. Can I add more than one RE1000 to my existing wireless network?

Yes. But since the RE1000 only gets half of the wireless signal from your main router or access point, adding multiple range extenders can provide you with even lower signal, thus, giving lesser bandwidth to your wireless computers or devices that you are going to connect to these additional extenders.Click to expand...

So, what would be an optimal solution to this? Should I go ahead and install the RE1000's? Is there something better that i can do?

Searching for a fix for my younger sister. She says it crashes when loading occupied or unoccupied lots, or when moving Sims into a lot. I installed the following myself, with no errors: Sims 2, University, Nightlife, Pets, Seasons.

I don't play the game, but she showed me the error. It's a basic dialog box that says something like "This application has crashed. The application will now terminate.". Nice and vague, huh? Well, we programmers call this a handled error, hence nothing in the Windows event log and we can blame EA!

Snooping around, I found a logs directory with application minidumps and some mostly unhelpful logs. Let me know if anyone wants me to zip some dumps and/or full logs. The logs show that the crash has occurred on with different expansions (mainly Pets and Seasons), in different neighborhoods, and on different lots. It's always exception 5... Read more

Hi, my name's Katie and I'm having major virus/spyware,adware,malware removal issues! I

have a lot of different things going on here, and can't make any sense of it. I tried

following other people's solved threads, but they didn't solve my issues, so I guess I need

personalized help. I have Windows security running (well, I usually do when it's working

properly,) and I run Ad-Aware and Spybot regularly, but it appears that they cannot solve

my issue. Anyway, here's a list of things that have been happening to my computer since the

virus happened...

1. I KNOW the virus was contracted in AIM. An IM came in from a friend with only a link. It

didn't look suspicious to me, so I clicked it, and all of a sudden I had IMEd everyone in

my buddy list the link, and received about a million IMs back (didn't have time to read

them before My Computer's virtual memory ran out and crashed AIM on me.

2.When the computer starts up, sometimes a default background appears before the logon

screen with the user accounts appears.

3.After logon, the same thing in general happens every time. Spybot comes up with a bunch

of messages saying that there is a registry change to my homepage or something else

happening. I deny it, and it denies it over and over again to seemingly no avail. A .txt

file appears on the desktop. I have never opened this file, don't know what it is, and

delete it every time. My homepage is con... Read more

Hello,

ComboFix is frequently updated.

Please delete your existing version. Grab a new copy from one of the links below.

This machine does not have the Windows XP Recovery Console installed.

The Windows recovery console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery mode that allows us to help you in the case that your computer has a problem after an attempted removal of malware.

With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Before beginning the fix, read this post completely. If there's anything that you do not understand, kindly ask your questions before proceeding.

It is IMPORTANT that you don't miss a step & perform everything in the correct order/sequence.

Please do this:
Download ComboFix from one of these locations:

Link 1
Link 2
Link 3

* IMPORTANT !!! Place combofix.exe on your Desktop

In Bit Defender, do a Live Update of your virus and software definitions. That should update you to the latest version. Or post to their forum, you will get a better response then in this general Microsoft Forum. or better yet, uninstall it and use Avast Free version and or Microsoft Security Essentials.

Hello Bleepers! You have helped me in the past and I am back. This time, this is my mom's computer and she didn't have a firewall (until now) and so this thing was infected beyond anything I have seen!I will be posting the log below, but first let me tell you a few things. I did follow the preparation instructions as best as I could, however, there were certain things I could not do.Ad-Aware:I kept running Ad-Aware and rebooting and it kept finding 50+ new critical items every time. I then disconnected the internet access to the computer and ran it. This way I got it down to 2 entries it said it couldn't removed and it couldn't remove them even after restarting.Spybot:A similar thing happened with Spybot, except I connected to the internet only to download the software and updates and disconnected to do the scan and fixes. Spybot also said it couldn't fix certain items, EVEN AFTER doing it during rebooting.I then ran HouseCall, Bit Defender and Avert Stinger (Panda was taking too long and I wasn't sure if it was stalled).Then, I installed ZoneAlarm and Finally ran HijackThis.Hopefully you can help me get this thing cleaned up and it top shape soon!

Hello,We can definitely help you, but first you need to help us. The first step in this process is to apply Service Pack 1 for Windows XP. Without this update, you're wide open to re-infection, and we're both just wasting our time.Click here to get Service Pack 1Warning: You must only update to Service Pack 1, and not Service Pack 2. Doing this before your computer is clean can cause Windows to become unstable. We will update to SP2 after the log is clean.After you have updated your computer to SP1, please restart your computer and post a new HJT log.

Hi,
 
I sure need help  --- I do not know how to deal with viruses, trojans, spyware, etc.
 
My husband and I were traveling. We had to use public Wifi places to check our email on our laptop. when we got home and checked our email accounts on our laptops, we found some really weird looking email messages. I 'think' my husband opened one that had his name in the Subject line, but we deleted all he other ones that looked strange. We did not open those emails, just deleted them.
 
Now all 3 of our computers are doing really weird things. I have run scan after scan after scan, both downloaded one and online ones. Sometimes they find problems and fix them. sometimes the scans find nothing. Yet our problems just seem to be getting worse and worse. I DESPERATELY need a lot of help.
 
I know it would be very confusing to try to work on all 3 of our computers at once so maybe we can start with my husband's desktop computer.
 
I am currently running Avast on it and it has been running for hours. It is find TONS of things like these ----
 
"...is infected by win32:Funweb-K [Pup}"
 
"...is infected by JS: ScriptIP-inf [Trj}
 
etc, etc, etc.
 
 
 
I have very little knowledge of how to fix a computer problem and no idea what to do. And I have absolutely NO idea how our desktops became infected from our lap top.
 
 
Is anyone willing to help me? I know it is bad and will probably take a long time to fix, but I need help... Read more

Eventually I held down [enter] and the files went in, well some didn't but Windows booted fine.

Hello,* Download Combofix to your desktop.Doubleclick combofix.exeFollow the prompts.Don't click on the window while the fix is running, because that will cause your system to hang.When finished and after reboot (in case it asks to reboot), combofix will open again to gather the necessary information for the log. This may take a bit. When done, Combofix will close and a log should open, combofix.txt. Post the contents of this log in your next reply together with a new hijackthislog.Do NOT post the ComboFix-quarantined-files.txt - unless I ask you to.

We're Setting up wi-fi to support two 3 story houses side-by-side.

I want to do this we'll, but as economically as possible.

Right now I have the strongest 700mw Amped Wireless router on the upper floor of one of the houses. The best we can do is 3 bars in some areas next door, and no or low signal in the weaker areas.

I've read about using a second residential router on an ethernet cable as an access point in the second house.
I've read some about the Ubiquity Bullet devices.
I've tried various extenders over the years with limited success. For me, they've been temperamental and often have to be reset.

Can anyone make some suggestions? If it's with the Bullet, what parts would I need and do you know the approx prices?

Tips appreciated.

Ok, I have lots of XP problems:

Can't open My computer from the desktop, the computer just locks up whilst attempting to open it, showing me the animated torch, saying it is looking for files.

The computer is running really slow, locking up and crashing programs for no apparent reason.

Cant access the drop down box (shortcut key F4) in windows explorer/applications/anywhere.

Internet explorer refuses to do anything if I type a web address without the http:// into the address box. It worked before, but now it isn't for some reason.

Finally, when I restart windows, it locks up for anything up to 5 minutes when it comes back up. The windows bar with the start button on, when I pass my mouse over it, the pointer turns to an hourglass and I am unable to do anything unti it sorts itself out.

I have tried running several anti virus programs, including AVG, Mcafee and Norton. Only AVG came up with a virus, 'Dialler'. I cleared this and it didn't make any difference. I alos tried system restore from several points, but each time it told me that it was unable to restore.

If ANYONE can give me any help at all, I would be extremely grateful.

Yours,

Wayne Donnelly.

Hey, im new to this site but...
Every time I try to move a Sim into a house, the music starts to skip and it freezes and/or crashes. It can't be any of my computer specs because I've been running the Sims 2 since the first one came out and the crashes have been occurring recently. Any help or explanation to this problem would be awesome. I've also just found out that it only happens when I try to move a Sim into a downloaded lot. The only site that I download anything from is www.thesimsresource.com and as far I know it is a safe site. Again, anyone who can help or tell me what the problem may be, please reply.

Battery is critically low and then it tell me to hitf1 to continue but its not coming on when i do as it says what must i do to get it off please

A:To the community

You will need to answer some questions first:
What model system?  How old is it?  Is it under warranty?
Did the problem occur spontaneously?  Or did you replace a mainboard?
Have you tried a system reset (unplug system, remove or disconnect the battery, hold the power button for 30 sec, and then restart)?

There are a number of references and links in the Subsystem for Unix Applications or SUA.  Some links point to a website called
www.suacommunity.com but it is not available.  The site says the domain is parked at Nettica. 

How can I get access to some of these resources e.g. bash and other tools ?

I'm not able to get an answer to my problem questions when I access community help any longer when I use MS help with IE? I used to be able to use their community help forums with IE problems. Any opinions as to what's going on? Thank you.

A:community help with IE

You mean that you can't actually access the forum or that the form itself doesn't give you any good answers?  If it's the former that I would try using Google Chrome or some other browser, if it's the latter I would just keep reposting on the forums, it takes the right person to see your post in order to get an answer.

I notice I cannot see the 'threads' when I go to MS Community Boards. Also, tried to post a question and get:

An error occurred while sending your post

We're sorry, but there was a problem with the system and your post was not received. The error has been reported to Operations and will be investigated as soon as possible. Please try again later.
 

A:MS Community Boards

Are you referring to Microsoft Answers. I believe all their community stuff was ported over to that.
