Windows 7: can't uninstall 2 programs after system restore

can't uninstall 2 programs after system restore

I uninstalled old versions of 2 programs (Photoshop CS4 and Firefox 3). I then found out I did something wrong and did a system restore to earlier that day. The system restore went fine and I recovered what I needed to. Those 2 programs were back in my "installed programs list" so I went to uninstall them again, but this time when I press the uninstall button nothing happens. Also if I try to open the programs nothing happens.

So they are there taking up harddrive space but I cant uninstall or open them.

How can I uninstall them now?

Thanks
