Have you tried deleting groups.cache? It can be found in My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\

Also: try to start your game without any custom content first and see if this solves the problem.

And:  Restart your computer before activating the game, in case it's a Securom problem. Securom is very sensitive to changes in the game folders, or any other folders (not connected to the game).

Deleting the groups.cache worked! Why? What is it?

Groups.cache is a cache file intended to help your game load and function faster by caching certain pieces of data. However, it occasionally becomes corrupt or invalid, particularly if you remove a lot of stuff, and must be nuked. It is nonessential and the game will make a new one. In theory, it's even supposed to be helpful, but occasionally, it breaks.
