I used advanced system optimizer to make a backup. Then i installed some new apps. Afterward, i restore my PC from the backup and all "new" apps i installed after creating that backup were lost in Windows Add-Remove. Unfortunately, some "new" apps can't uninstall itself. So how can i remove them?

If it's just a dead entry in add/remove programs that you can't get rid of, if you already delete the files/folders in the Program Files folder, then just remove the reg entry.

Click Start > Run > type in

regedit

when that opens, navigate to this subkey;
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
Expand the "Uninstall" key by clicking on the plus "+" sign,
scroll down and delete the program that are stuck in your add/remove program's list.
