Please forgive me, I'm having a hard time understanding the problem.

The TWR program wouldn't have touched your folders. 

1st if system restore isn't working, you may have a deeper issue.  If it is hanging there for hours, I may very well suspect you have a drive problem.

IF the folder was of installed programs, The programs should still be install and you can find them by clicking the windows icon on the bottom left and then all programs.

I am HOPING your folder on the desktop was a shortcut folder to your work.  Storing an actual folder on the desktop is a bad idea as it can be  accidentally deleted.  I know, I've done it myself.  If you did that, the best hope is the folder is in the recycle bin and you can restore it.  There should be an icon on your desktop for that.

Otherwise, I am hoping you had a folder shortcut, and you just need to search your drive to where they were store - like my documents or my pictures.

OK - If you stored a folder on your desktop and it was deleted. You're best bet is to do nothing to write to the drive and open recycle bin to see if the folder is there.
If that doesn't work something like this should

- WR doesn't "Clean the registry". If you want to clean the registry then use the one Eusing offers.
- System Restore (SR) can be a REAL "Pain in the a**". I know that in one instance SR doesn't work at all. If you want to make a backup of the registry then Use Tweaking's Registry Backup. It makes a backup every time you start your system. And the program can also restore the registry to a previous state. It's much more reliable than Windows' SR.
- You're sure you don't have a virus on your system ?

- When System Restore doesn't work then Registry Backup is a good alternative.

Nothing the Tweaking software could have done would delete a folder from your desktop. 

I have done and seen it done where folders are accidentally deleted off the desktop by errant mouse clicks.

1) did you check your recycle bin?
2) did you do a search for some of the file names on your drive to see if it was actually a shortcut and to a folder?
3) if it is not in recycle bin or another place on the drive - did you try the software I recommended?

Until you solve what I have above - I would highly recommend that you stop writing to your drive. The more likely it is that you will not recover any data.
