The files from the #Crack folder don't go in any rar file, but in the base game installation folder which is C:\Program Files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.
If this is what you did, then try and clear the cache: go to Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3, and delete:

¤ The folder DCCache
¤ The files CASPartCache, compositorCache, scriptCache, simCompositorCache and socialCache.
See if this works...

You must have deleted "DCBackup". Please undelete it if you can (restore it from the Trash).

oh! well...anywho...just tried recuva and apparently most of the files i had just deleted in this 1 hour are unrecoverable...guess ima ave to start a new game and install hidden springs again and then ima be able to confirm if deleting those caches helped...if that still happens then what do i do!?

also if those dc backup files get deleted then except installing hidden springs and starting a new game what  other stuff am i looking to reinstall??...any ideas!

also another thing is is the fact of deleting those particular cache files to overcome the trouble i stated in my OP just your hunch or will doing that work for sure!?

thx Smile

Well you shouldn't have lost a world. This folder is backup (saved items and games).
This is weird.

Please re install the world and keep us updated.

k...UPDATE - 

i tried once again with deleting the cache files and then starting sims3 and no change...whats more i read a  post saying to open the console command and type 'resetsim' command...so i tried that and i cant open the console command screen or click for options...or click other sims or objects or anything its like the game is stuck but at the same time only and only the damn green sim's symbol over the sim's head is active...hence i had to end task the game to come back...Facepalm Sad Mad

Opening console is Ctrl+Shift+C. THen type 'resetsim [nameofyoursim]'. For example: 'resetsim Bella Clark'.
See if that helps...
