I think university is the first or second expansion pack. I know there are issues if the expansions are not installed in order of their release. if you have say, seasons or freetime and then install university, it may not run correctly. You have to uninstall the packs or the game and re-install them in correct order. Yes, it's a big pain but I had to do it twice.
Install the SIMS2, or double deluxe whatever you have then follow this order with exception of say nightlife if you have have double deluxe because it comes with the original game.

As long as you have your download file located in Documents/Ea Games/The Sims 2/Downloads (I already had this folder when I installed the game.) you should be fine.
Your might want to try taking out your Sim Blender, and try executing again. It may be causing the game to freeze before it loads all the way. I am currently having the same problems and I am looking for a solution.
I KNOW, IT ALWAYS WILL FREEZE THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT, BUMMER I KNOW, TRY TO keep it ventalated, but most of all BUY SIMS 3, NO LOADING SCREENS, NO FREEZING ON CREATE A FAMILY, FRANKLY I SAY AMAZING.
if the game is brand new its not the game. the most likely reason this happens is because your computers graphics card is not sufficient, what is your graphics cards memory? the brand? model? if you do not know this, how old is your computer? when did you get it and when was the last time you updated your computer with new hardware?
