Hey Johnny and welcome
Did you do a clean install or upgrade?
You cant use a vista recovery (or backup) to install apps in win 7. If you did an upgrade they should already be there.
Do you have a windows.old folder on you C: drive?
If so you can use the easy transfer wizard to import your settings, etc
waiting on info
