You're going to have to completely re-install the Sims. The game is corrupt and the computer no longer sees the game as operatable.

I installed The Sims fine and played it then had to uninstall it. I installed it again and everything went fine. I went to play the game and it said " Please Log In With Administrator Privileges And Try Again" WHAT DO I DO!!! I MISS MY SIMS!!!
