Factory reset deleted all the original ASUS apps.

My laptop, which I've had for just over a year began to randomly freeze. I took it in to a third party and the guy reinstalled Windows 8. The problem is that I no longer have the original Asus apps such as 'Smart Gesture' or 'Instan On.' It's all gone. Is there a way to recover these apps?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Take a look at http://www.asus.com/Notebooks_Ultrabooks.... It appears that they have most of that software if you choose "Windows 8" from the dropdown.

Note that while the dropdown also has a Windows 8.1 section, I think that's only for the software that is different between Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. If you're running Windows 8.1, you'll probably want to use the versions of the software from the Windows 8.1 section for some things.

Most of that software is useless, the only important software is: ASUS ATK Package to use the keyboard function keys, and ASUS Smart Gesture to make the trackpad.

To install ASUS Smart Gesture, the ATK Package will need to be installed

Since the third party guy installed a new windows OS, it will not be the OEM INE meaning that al the preinatalled apps won't be available. You will need the original OS that most likely will be on the Asus page. You might need a USB to reinstall it. Hope this información helps.
