It's a program. Look to the side of this page, on the navigation. Look in downloads; utilities; file cop. It should be there and you'll be able to download it from then on.

If you have tried reinstalling the game but are still having problems then it's a memory issue. Your computer doesn't have the memory to run the expansion packs properly.
Try getting rid of any downloaded files you don't use for the sims, also clean your computer files and programs up (get rid of anything you don't use that won't hurt your computer's performance), or opt for buying another memory chip. That's about all you can do I'm afraid :(

is downloading the filecop safe? I really dont wanna get any viruses. I have the same problem (I already posted a question) and everytime i go the select or create a family it goes back to the desktop, but i can still play with the people that are already in the homes- if i did download the filecop would everthing be erased and be like it was when i first installed the games?
