Sims 3 problems - I tried fixing my Pets game, now I can't play at all. [FIXED]

Updated:
Admin helped me by first, following these instructions and installing everything:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly-updated
Next, the manual update:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v129-fix-manual-patch
And, finally, the ultimate fix:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems

While I still can't open my Launcher, that isn't really necessary since my game is full updated.
Thank you Admin for all your help, time and effort!

Original problem:

I downloaded the Sims 3 Complete (through you guys - Games4TheWorld), and had no problems. Then I downloaded Pets (Also through you guys. Fixed, not Full_Fixed. I didn't get the chance to try the newer update). I didn't have any problems until I tried Pets, but I really wanted to play it, so I tried doing the following things:
One, I tried reinstalling Complete and Pets, 'cause I wasn't sure if it was a mod problem or not.
Then I went to http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t857-the-sims-3-crashes-freezes-to-desktop-fix-updated-on-10-01-2012 and did everything, 1-5. (As a side note, the DEP list would not let me add the Sims3Launcher.exe files in the base file or any of the expansions. It said that certain things weren't allowed on the list 'cause they were needed to keep Vista working.)
None of it helped, so I was going to try and do as http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly-updated said to do. Before I uninstalled everything, none of the Sims 3 launchers would launch. It would say the program has stopped working and that DEP has blocked this program.
I installed the Sims 3 base and started updating it. The update was done downloading and it was installing when I had the same problem - it said the program has stopped working and that DEP has blocked this program. I changed the DEP settings to what they were before, restarted, tried again. Had the same problem. Then, just to see if it would work, I completely turned off DEP and tried again. Didn't work. (As another side note, I tried returning it to the default 'run this program in compatibility mode for' before all of this.)
When I tried opening my game, it gives me the 'please insert disk' error. So, not only can I not get my game to update so I can continue installing the rest, I can't even play my base game. I didn't have any problems until I tried fixing Pets. If there's any suggestion on what I can do to get things working again, I'd be eternally grateful. WhatDidUJustCallMe? I'd rather be without the Pets expansion, if it means getting to play again.

Hello,

Please contact me via the Forum's chatbox when you see me online. Sounds quite messed up, but I'm sure we'll get it to work, don't worry.
I'll see what I can do via TeamViewer for you.

Oh gosh, I feel like the biggest noob ever.. Um, would sending you a private message do that? Or what do I have to do to be able to chat message you? .___.;

Hi there's an error when I downloaded the Sims 3 Pets from Games4theWorld. I had previous mods installed and everytime I hit CONTINUE when he program asks if I want to go on with the mods, the game shuts down. This has only happened when I installed Sims 3 Pets.

What should I do??

Hello,
Could you please open your own topic? It'll be easier to help you if we keep everyone's problems in separate topics, thank you.
