Although I had uninstalled the game, I found it hard to get rid of my cc (some of which I paid for). My cp has become VERY SLOW. Procmon registered thousands of attempts by my system to access my sims 2 folder and I finally decided to get rid of it (its IS saved on an external drive). I deleted a whopping 160,000 + items totalling over 46 GB. I think I might be obsessive about cc and have vowed to be more prudent about sims 3......harder to move the stuff in and out of the game.
time will tell!! LOL
