I've had my computer for just over a year. My game The Sims has been perfectly well all this time until about a month ago. Suddenly in the last month from time to time during the game starts to run very slow and choppy, only about 30 seconds to a minute and then start playing again. This happens about once a day or something sim. It's very, very annoying and made it almost impossible play. I only has the basic game, no expansions, not all CC. My computer is fine, as far as I know. There are no viruses, there is nothing wrong with my computer, and as I said in the past year has been no problem at all, which has been great! I will add in DirectX Diagnostics, and I was asked to do this before, if anyone can help please all would be great. I'm trying to include as much information as possible now to make it easier, but I have all this week off work and really lost my game and I want to play! Oh, and this happens in every house in the 3 districts I have in my game. So it's not just a house. Ah, the sound and everything works normal during troubled times.
