Command line scripts is an advanced thing.

Maybe first just try 

Then if you are familiar with phpMyAdmin you can install:
and try to clear the sys_log and sys_history table (remember that 
sys_history is responsible for "undo" abilities of TYPO3)

Finally you can go to install tool: http://yourdomain.com/typo3/install/
and delete all files from typo3temp.

Remember that before the cleaning it is recommended to make a backup of 
your TYPO3 installation. Just in case.
