I got about more than 10 files in my virus chest and I uninstalled avast premier to install free avast.

Will my laptop get infected or my laptop will not work properly  If some important files from virus chest has been deleted?

That depends on the files, without further info it's hard to tell.

If they were important files and they were in the chest, then you could/would already be experiencing problems as they aren't in the original location.
