Okay, when I'm playing my game every thing is going just fine then all of the sudden my game goes back to the desktop. Does anybody know why this is happening? Thanks in advance.

I've had this problem before, and I eventually decided to try something of my own. I'm thinking one of the files in the UserData is corrupted, because when I replaced it with a different one everything worked.

NOTE: I only suggest this if you start to find that your game crashes after hovering your mouse over certain lots in the neighborhood map, as was the case with mine. If you don't already have the update, I suggest getting it from The Sims official website first. It didn't fix my problems, but it could fix yours. Otherwise, try this.

1.) Install The Sims and all other expansion packs you have before Unleashed.
2.) After installation, in C:\Program Files\Maxis\The Sims (or wherever your Sims folder is) locate your UserData folders(UserData, UserData2, UserData3, etc.) and copy them.
3.) Paste them somewhere else (I used My Documents).
4.) Install Unleashed.
*If you don't feel safe completely replacing your UserData folders from Unleashed, then you can make a copy the same way you made one earlier(I did).
5.) Copy/Cut the copies you made of UserData and paste them in The Sims folder when installation is completed. When asked if you want to replace the folders, select Yes.
*You may want to download the patch from The Sims official website afterwards.

It should work, it did for me. I haven't noticed any side effects or problems so far, but I've only had it fixed for a short while so there could be. If you do experience any problems, then simply replace the UserData folders with the ones you copied after installing Unleashed. Hope this helps everyone else out there.

It's not enough memory. Set your system to the maximum swap/page size possible.
