Every time i start up my vista, The Sims2 automatically loads up and makes my computer run really slow. It was suggested to me to take it off the auto.exe.bat since vista doesn't use DOS, but i can't find it on mine. does anyone know what i can do?

Sounds like it somehow got added to the startup list. Run MSCONFIG, find it on the startup list & disable it.

Check if theres a shortcut in here for Sims2, if so, delete it.

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

P.S. I think ProgramData is a hidden file, you may need to make a shortcut to get to this location.
