Ok, so it asked me if it can make changes, to which I hit YES. Nothing after that....

Command prompt pops up for a split second and then....nothing.

Someone on a forum suggesting running "OriginTMP.exe" in the Origin directory. Ran it, it disappeared and then ran Origin and now it works. EA is retarded.

Man....I hate Origin. Long live Steam.
