Windows 8 ate my programmes

Why does windows 8 make my desktop progs disappear? So far I have lost, and had to re install....Windows Office, One Note, Norton 360, Google Earth and an Astronomy programme I can't find. The Mail 8 prog is quick but basic, too basic. Most of the 'free' apps are littered with adverts and offers of upgrades...at a price. The games in any case are not a patch on the Windows 7 offerings. One Note for example is just a cheapened version of the real thing! The whole thing looks like a tablet programme that some bright spark has said of...."Hey guys, we can save a s*** of money if we run this on all machines! Ha!!!

The Windows 8 installer will certainly not remove Microsoft Office,or Google earth,or Norton 360 - I can't comment about the astronomy software. I can't understand why you had to reinstall any of the three I mentioned.
If you have a Microsoft Office installation you will have Outlook for email - you don't need to use Windows mail.
