    if you have windows 2k or xp, go to start > programs > accessories > system tools > system restore

    you can try using this to restore the system to an earlier time when the game worked. just select a date prior to your noticing the problem. do not interrupt the restore process, it can take quite some time.

    This could be caused by a corrupted Sims 2 saved game file... or perhaps some other corrupted Sims 2 file.

    Does it just happen in one neighborhood? I remember Sims 1 used different saved files for different neighborhoods, maybe Sims 2 works the same way. Doing this may help us figure it out.
