Join Date: Mar 2005
I played my game all night, and haven't added any downloads, except some from my other neighborhood which work. When I take out my downloads the error doesn't go away. It's happened about 6 or 7 times and nothing is making my game work. Here is the it makes each time, maybe someone more familiar than I am can understand it.:

Thanks for any help!! Just want to make sure it's not something easy to fix before I reinstall the game.

That means your computer is trying to access memory allocation areas that aren't available to it. Try cleaning up your computer with Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter to free up hard drive space. Also consider removing any unused programs you may have installed that aren't required.

I too have been having this problem all throughout December,so i'm glad i found this thread.The last time my game played okay was in the middle of November so i'm going to Defrag my disk and see if that helps at all...
Nope i have defragged my disk and cleaned it up and i'm still having the same access violation log....

Have you performed thorough virus scans and malware scans? Also, have you added/ removed any software lately?
