When I try to open the Sims 2,
Kerio Personal Firewall displays this warning message

If I allow it, the sims will run but crash.
If I don't allow it, the sims will not open.

Everytime I delete the file ~e5.0001 it just comes back again.

What is it?

Everything I could find on it shows that it's legit and not malware. Try deleting all of your temp. files, cookies, etc. You might have to remove and reinstall the Sims 2
