Question about Computers & Internet
When trying to re install my Sims 2 I can only install to 23% then the program quits responding. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
I ended up having to completely deleting and overwriting my computer. I then had to reinstall all programs.

Did you uninstall SIMS first? I would ask if you have added any new devices (like a new video card) to your machine. The idea is that a device driver is being installed and there may be a conflict or file that is locked while installing. Do you actually get an error? Please indicate it here.
1) Uninstall SIMS
2) Shutdown the computer, wait for 15 seconds
3) Restart the machine, if any new changes occur, let them happen, then start at 2 again until nothing updates.
4) Reinstall SIMS
If these don't work, make sure your machine still meets the minimum requirements of the game.
Also, see that the disk is clean. Possibly make a backup copy of the game on DVD/CD and try from that.
One more thing, make sure you scan your system for Virus.

Tips for a great answer:

Installation or uninstallation of an application or game fails and gives the following error code:
This issue is due to a previous installation not finishing properly
Solution 1. Rename the Installshield folder
Make sure you've enabled Show hidden files and folders.
Find and rename the Installshield folder:
Windows 32-bit: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Installshield
Windows 64-bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Installshield
If there is an Installshield file in the Common Files folder, rename that one also (e.g. to Installshield_OLD).
Solution 2. Remove all traces of previous uninstall
If renaming the Installshield folder had no effect, find and delete any traces of uninstalled applications.
Alternatively, do a manual clean-up:
Close all running programs. Then clear the Temp folder (found via input of %temp% in Start > Search or Start > Run).
Use the Windows registry editor to delete registry entries related to the program.
Restart the computer.
hope this helps
