The save was corrupted and unreadable, caused by System Restore.
From the user: This happened when I loaded the game. First I used System Restore to revert back to version 7.0 (Pre-Generations) and loaded the game and I emptied all of Urblake's and the girls' inventories, I saved the game from Outdoor Living. Next, I used System Restore to undo the changes and then tried to load the game. This is what now happened. The family name was Ramirez and the date and time were 12:00 AM and 12:45AM respectively, the household description was "Lot description". Another glitch is that I started a new game in Bridgeport and choose to play as Elvira Slayer. I save the game and went to the Main Menu and clicked on the glitched save, it had the Slayer name and description. Very odd.
