Are your fans working? If they're not it will cause overheating while stationary or in slow traffic. Overheating while driving points to the radiator.
Get some engine flush into the cooling system and run the car for a couple miles. Then let it cool down and remove all the water(Take both large hoses off the radiator). Then stick a hosepipe into the radiator and let the water run until clear.
If this doesnt work remove the radiator and have it reconditioned/replaced. Removing the thermostat will not cause the engine to overheat. It just causes the engine to take longer to reach operating temp.

Then replace the thermostat, because if on lower hose not hot and on upper hose scalding hot = antifreeze flow blocked by the thermostat wich remains closed!!!
