Sticky Notes not working, now disappeared.

My Sticky Notes program only functioned properly for the first day I had the computer.  The second day, the program was still there, but it wouldn't open.  Now, months have gone by and the program isn't even in the "Control Panel" programs list.  I have
followed the instructions given in other threads by turning off and on the tablet features in "Program and Features".  This has not made the program reappear.

Please help!

A Windows disc is needed for old versions of Windows, but Windows 8 has a built in Refresh option that makes the job easy. Bring up the Charms bar on the right side of the screen and click Settings, Change PC settings. Click Update and recovery, then Recovery. Under Refresh your system without affecting your files, click Get started.

Personal files - photos, music and documents - are kept, so it isn't a complete refresh, but it's may be enough for most people. A more powerful option is Remove everything and reinstall Windows. Copy files you want to keep to a USB drive before starting though.
