    Hi, try running all the Microsoft Widows Updates:
    Start -> All Programs -> Windows Updates

    Also, try update to the ".Net Framework 3.5 SP1"

    Note: Google ".Net Framework 3.5 SP1" and the download link from should pop up.

    Good Luck

    Before updating .Net test to see if the game launches if you try to start it from the TS3.EXE icon in the game folder
    (C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin\TS3.exe)

    If not then upgrade to 3.5 SP1
    If this doesn't fix it you may want to try some of the additional steps here:
