After upgrading to Windows 8, I lost all my programs.

Original title: Polar Coach Elite / Pccoach/SonikLink

 

My Polar Coach Elite data transferring system ( SonicLink) was working really well on my PC´s previous OS ( Windows 7 ). When I upgraded ( Online )the OS to Windows 8 I lost huge amount of programmes and applications ( List below ). I would like to get my old OS ( Windows 7 ) back.

How can I do it without "paying" too much effort ?
