I could have explained my recommendation a little better...
Malware often corrupts various system files. You've eliminated all of the active malware, but some damaged system files may be left behind. These system files may include the tools that let you uninstall various apps, it's really hard to know for sure. The system file checker will test the integrity of all the major system files, and help you replace any that have been damaged or replaced with imposters.
Many apps require being uninstalled before they can be re-installed. In fact, most do.
In the end, a massive malware infection usually means you should reinstall all of Windows and your apps. Otherwise you might run into similar problems until you do. Hopefully your system will work without a complete re-install, but that's what's going on.
