I have loaded and reloaded win 8 and cannot get all of the icons to run various programs. I used the same installation disk on another computer and everything works fine.

By icons do you mean the tabs on the Metro UI?

When I first installed W8 I had a similar issue, with only the desktop app working. I was able to remedy it by increasing my screen resolution. A quick way to get there is by right clicking while in the desktop app.

The cause is the resolution. It must be 1024x768 or higher in order for the tabs to work correctly.
