My Spore (pc version) will not run at all!!! Answered

I bought Spore when it first came out and had fun playing it for about 10 weeks. The when I went to play it one day, the screen went dark like it was loading, but then a box came up that said "Spore has encountered a problem and needs to close....". I have rebooted my computer, de-installed and re-installed the game, checked the EA games website, but nothing works. Has anyone else had this problem? Can it be fixed? Thanks!


I Googled "Spore has encountered a problem and needs to close", over 5000 results. If it's happened to you it's almost certainly happened to someone else, and the answers are already out there.
