Try your earliest restore point.

If that won't work you will probably have to reinstall the programs.

If you have un-installed the programs using System Restore might not bring them back. Just re-install and be done with it.

Your system restore will not work until you re set it, by going to syst restore >sys restore settings put a check in turn off sys restore on all drives.
restart computer>go back to system restore>syst restore settings>take the check out now system restore should work again as before, but remember by resetting your system restore youu sart off fresh with no restore points saved. and the program/s in question will need to be reinstalled and then your restore point will be created.
Hope this helps

Cheers
Susan

Windows System Restore only reverts your operating system state - not data files and not anything but Windows.

Yes and I suggest to revert to post #3. Since the un-installed programs are not the Windows files for Windows they more than likely will not be put back in since they have been deleted.
