I'm having the same problem. I noticed it back when I tried to use the Couture outfits from the EA store. People would tell me it was the other CC that I had but it only did the freezing when I played that household that at the outfit on. Well, it worked fine for awhile but then I just tried to play it again after I had bought Sims 3 Pets about 2 months ago and I got it. Also, the game seems to slow down a bit due to the Pets. Then I tried to play it the other day after the patch and it freezes on me. I know the solutions that someone posted earlier will not help and I'm don't really feel like uninstalling the game and re-installing it when it was working fine before.

I am also having this problem and Resetsim does not solve it for me. I have no mods in my game and am playing on a brand new quad core gaming laptop which I bought to ensure that my game would run smoothly. I've had the problem since installing the Diesel stuff pack. It makes the game totally annoying and unplayable
