Origin (EA) Is no longer running error

All right, so I recently had to reinstall windows and when I put ME3 back on and tried to start it through Origin it says Origin (EA) Is no longer running. Mass Effect 3 will now close at the start menu. I've checked my firewall and it's exempted and everything. When I try to open it directly through the exe file it comes up with a little window that says that Origin isn't even installed. Anyone have any clues?

If all else fails I'd try reinstalling origin. If you just copied origin system files to another computer I doubt they would recognise it properly. A lot of programs have problems if you copy and paste files to another computer rather than doing a proper install on the new computer.

Is it different from the normal "can't connect to server" issue? Could just be origin being down if not.

I fresh installed mass effect 3 and didn't copy the files, Origin was on a seperate hard drive. But I uninstalled and reinstalled anyway and there was no change
