Did you try just removing them from Add/Remove programs?

For future reference, uninstall all programs from Add/Remove programs. Simply deleting the folder really isn't a good idea.


You may still be able to go to the recycle bin and restore the folders deleted and then go to add/remove programs and uninstall them the proper way .


You can use the Microsoft Installer Cleanup utility to remove some of the programs you've removed incorrectly (or programs that didn't uninstall themselves correctly) and then use CCleaner's issues scan to clean up the registry entries (run the Issues scan repeatedly until no more issues are found - and always save backups).
