Why is Sim 4 trying to load all of this unrelated stuff??!!!

Post by MommyMayhem on Mon 07 May 2018, 02:55

I have noticed that since the last pack my game is getting slower and slower. I decided to do a little digging and started logging the startup process of it thinking one of my CC was bad and I was going to try and pin point the lagging one but I was really shocked by what I saw! Why is this game trying to load all of these..AND MUCH MUCH more. I would have to take several screen shots to get it all but why would this game be trying to access all of that?! All of these are failed file open calls. But, can someone shed some light on this please?

Most of it leads to ADM Computer Solutions.
That has nothing to do with the Sims.
It seem to open a.o. Firefox, Opera, Netscape and runs all kinds of Java programs.
Looks like a virus to me.

I don't have firefox or netscape. And I have scanned my computer with 4 different anti-virus programs because that was my first thought as well. I scanned with Malwarebytes as well. I was going to start pulling CC out and seeing if it still does that. I know for a fact that certain mods can and do "dial home" because it would tell me when there was an update. I can't remember which it was but I know I got it off MTS. But this is just bizarre. And this isn't even a fraction of it. There were pages on top of pages.  

Would someone else be so kind as to check their install as well and see if they are getting the same loading issue? This is the program that I used

I would greatly appreciate it.

Curious but how did you figure out it leads to ADM Computer solutions? Those are two legit trial programs I was using to do list comparisons a few days ago that I got directly from their site but I wouldn't put a virus/malware infection past anything now days.

OK! It's DEFINITELY a mod or a CC. I will report back when I pin point which one is doing this.
