Lightbulb Virus on my computer...I think

Okay, so I believe something HAD given my computer a virus, but I am not sure what. Everything is fine now though, but I wonder what it was. I think it might have been The Sims 3 Create a World Tool. When my computer was not working, nothing would run, google chrome, interent explorer, the works. So, I got rid of some things before my computer messed up and one of those things was the create a world tool. Then it messed up. So, I restored my computer to an earlier time before I uninstalled create a world and now it works fine, except that I am unable to uninstall create a world. Weird, I know. Anyone know what this problem could be?

Have you tried to clean your recycle bin or Temp Internet files

You can try CCleaner to clean cookies. If that doesn't work, maybe right mouse click c, disk cleanup, and clean whatever. Also type msconfig, go startup, and untick any programs you dont want loading in the startup. Do this, restart and see if it makes any difference.

^ I just want to know: Do you read into the description of the issue actually before answering?
Because different programs not running (including Works) are totally not related to cookies and Temporary Internet Files.

@ CiaKonwerski: How exactly did you "get rid of some things"? Did you delete the files or uninstall them properly?

Have you run full system antivirus scan?

Run ARDiag.exe and post the report.

No they are the same thing. I had trouble where my brower wasn't opening, I had this before when programs wasn't opening, I cleared my temp files, and cookies and it was OK. It turned out I had less space, and therefore the pc was confused.
