When I search for certain programs in the modern UI they don't come up, they don't even come up when I go on all apps. The only one I can open them is by going into C:\Program Files (x86) and finding the program in there. Can someone please help me? Thanks.

I know this isn't really helping but in some cases, they won't show up at all. I've been using Windows 8 on my laptops in beta form, RTM for over a year now and the sad truth is the modern UI is broken.
Example is I usually install SQL 2012 first, then VS 2010. There is no amount of searching display the results. In this example, SQL 2012 uses VS 2010 as a shell. Many things do. In order to open it up, I would have to search for SQL Server Data Tools in order to open up VS because doesn't that just sounds like visual studio?
Silly isn't it.
Do yourself a favor and install a start button

What start button would you recommend? There's too many to choose from. ._.

So far my favorite is Start 8 from Stardock Start8 for Windows® 8 - Bringing back the Windows Start menu Yeah, it cost $5 but it does allow me to skip what use to be called metro on startup and has some nice features. I have tried quite a few of them and this one is just the one I prefer.

Fresh install into restore while keeping programs on another disk.
A while back I accidentally uninstalled Windows Media Player from my Windows 7. Yeah, sure, no big deal. Download it again! There are none! Go Microsoft! Or even better, crawdad, you can go turn it on again in the features menu! Wrong. It says it can't run or be updated due to it being registered...
