Hello @StarriEyes,

First of all, please try configuring exclusions in that antivirus program (that pops up in your example screenshot). Smile  So try adding the install path of The Sims 4 to the exclusions. I'm not familiar with the program, so I'm afraid I can't suggest much else than try googling if you needed more instructions on that.

If, however, the program doesn't let you configure exclusions, you have to make priorities. Do you want to keep the program, or play The Sims 4? You might need to consider uninstalling the antivirus program (followed by a reboot of the computer).

In addition it's also a good idea to disable the built-in Windows Defender, if you are running Windows 10.

After you did all of that, please try re-applying the latest patch. Simply copy and paste it again over your Sims 4 installation. See how the game runs after that.

What was the latest DLC or update that you installed? I think Dine Out is included in our torrent for "City Living"; so you will need to re-copy/re-paste that torrent over your Sims 4 installation.

The problem now is, you also need to re-apply all DLC after City Living again as well, depending on how "far" you installed those DLC.

You could also try to download Dine Out from this topic:

So are you still getting the error with the "Pack download in progress", or is the error gone?

@Anadius1 developed a very good system that deals with this problem



Problem:
When you start the game it will come up with the message that uninstalled DLC's will download. That of course is not true, so you can just click that message away.
​Also it shows that ALL packs are installed and that is not true either
To solve this problem, download the DLC-toggler.
​Unpack with Winrar and place the 2 files in the main directory of your install folder The Sims 4

dlc-toggler.rar
Download File


When you click on dlc-toggler.exe a screen with all DLC's appears.(in your own language, my example is in Dutch)
The DLC's in your possession are in white, items you don't have are in red
 
When you activate all white items and de-activate the red ones and then close the toggler, after a new start your game will show the icons for the DLC's really installed and won't come up with the "Download in Progress screen".
​(Of course you can also de-activate unwanted DLC's in your possession.)
