Back up your sierra\swat4\content\system\user.ini and sierra\swat4\contentexpansion\system\user.ini files if you like your keybinds and custom controls.
Go to Add & Remove programs (via control centre if necessary). Uninstall all mods, maps, skins, e.t.c. you may have listed for SWAT4/SWAT4:TSS. Uninstall SWAT4:TSS, check the box to remove the entire directory, uninstall SWAT4, check the box to remove the entire directory.

The way i read it... this is just a guide to uninstalling a game.
wait...so you are asking to erase all evidence of the game from computer and folders and then re-installing the game to fix that error?
You can uninstall the game and remove every thing but the trick is
You must allow things to initiailize properly, e.g. if you install S4, S4 Patch, TSS, and then run TSS you're more likely to break some thing.
It's probably possible to fix it without reinstalling any thing -> But it would take longer to dig into the SDK and learn about what the games do when the are run the first time.
This is the main problem why i have not been able to play swat for more then 1 month.
