Is there any way I can find out the registry key locations so I can delete them then delete the Sims 3 folder?

Just tried this and it didn't work,luckily I made a system restore just before I deleted the keys.

I'm getting mad now because I just reformatted a few days ago and now there's already something wrong. There's no type of uninstall exe in my sims 3 folder either.

Tried the link, as well as "http://support.ea.com", the site seems to be down entirely. I get a redirect to "http://customersupport.ea.com", and the error message "Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)". Thought you might want to know...

Hi,

You will need to reinstall your Sims 3 games unfortunately. Before doing that however, it is highly recommended that you perform a manual uninstall first to remove any file or registry fragments:

Please note that you may require Administrative access to perform the manual deletion of game files or registries. If issues persist with manual deletion, it is advised that you boot Windows in Safe Mode before trying again.
