In this case, Ashtontr, I'd recommend reinstalling WC3.
If you want to save your character profiles or saved games, copy the "Save" folder from your Warcraft III folder to another folder on your hard drive for safe keeping. When the game is reinstalled you can copy the folder back to the Warcraft III folder. To uninstall the game use the Warcraft III Uninstaller (click on "Start", "Programs", "Warcraft III", "Warcraft III Uninstall").
Now you can uninstall the game using the Warcraft III uninstaller by clicking on "Start", "Programs", "Warcraft III", and then the uninstall option. Next, go into the directory where Warcraft III was previously installed and see if the "Warcraft III" folder is still listed. If it is still listed, right-click on it and delete it.
Then run a thorough scandisk and defrag of your hard drive(s). You will probably find it helpful to disable your screen saver and power management features before you scandisk or defrag. Sometimes Windows will restart the defragmentation and/or scandisk if your screen saver or power management kicks in. The following webpage has instructions on how to complete this: http://us.blizzard.com/support/article/21144.
Empty your "Recycle Bin" if it contains files and restart your computer.
If you are using Windows XP/2000/Vista or Mac OSX please make sure you are logged on as an administrator account. If the game is not installed on an administrator account, computer permissions can prevent the installation from completing. We cannot support the game on a non-administrator account. To find out which user accounts are marked as Administrator accounts, please see the instructions below:
-Click Start > Control Panel and look for an icon called User Accounts.
-Double click this and it should bring up a list of users on your computer.
-Find the user account that matches your user name and have a look in the group column, it may say administrator, power user or user. This is what type of account you are logged on with. If it says administrator you should be ok.
Now install Warcraft III. After it is installed, you can install the expansion CD.
There's only one problem... for one, i lost reign of chaos somehow, so i cant re-install it if i uninstall. is there a way to only uninstall the frozen throne? because i only have the frozen throne to install...

No, but if you have the keys, you can download both games.
We now offer downloads for many of our Battle.net games. If you have lost your Game CD's and still have your CD-key you can sign up for a Blizzard account, register your game and download the game files. For more information, please visit our Game Download page here:
The game downloaders use the Blizzard downloader to download the necessary game files. For common issues and troubleshooting steps associated with the Blizzard Downloader, please visit our Blizzard Downloader Troubleshooting page here:
When installing a digital download of a Battle.net game from the Blizzard Online Store, please make sure to use the CD-Key that is listed for that game on your Blizzard account information page at http://www.blizzard.com/account .
For example some CD-Keys such as older 13 digit Starcraft CD-Keys will automatically update to a new CD-Key once it has been registered online and the new updated CD-Key must be used to install the digital download version of the game.
This updated CD-Key will be in a different format to older CD-keys, so please make sure that if you are using the Digital download installation of any Battle.net game to obtain your updated CD-Key from your Blizzard Account page to install the game if necessary.
If you are having any problems accessing your Blizzard account, Billing and Account Services can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone between 8am and 8pm Pacific Time, Mon - Fri at (800) 59-BLIZZARD (800-592-5499). Customers in Australia should call 1-800-041-378.
The universe is already insane. Anything else would be redundant.
