I uninstalled (removed) Magic Canvas from our new HP and would like to reinstall (download). Since it was pre-installed, I assume there will be no cost. Can someone please give me a link?

New guy here.
I just did the same thing. I have a brand new P7-1254, and I was installing my old software, transferring files via Windows Easy Transfer, and removing programs I expected I would never use.
In doing so, I accidentally removed Magic Canvas while I was only trying to remove HP Movie Watcher (or whatever it was called).
I want to use Magic Canvas, and would like to get it installed again. I read up the info on Recovery Manager, and it makes it sound like it will revert the entire hard drive back to as it came out of the box. Meaning, I will lose two days of work transferring files and installing my old programs.
Is this so?
Or, can I get into Recovery Manager and just specifiy re-install the one software program?
Thanks for your help!
PS: I tried HP Chat but it would not connect.

For anyone else having the same issue as me:
Alright, I am learning WIndows 7 versus having XP for years.
I saw on the bottom of the start menu a search box. I typed into the search box "recovery manager" and it found the program. I started the program and found the 'software recovery' function and it worked as I hoped. I was able to re-install the single software program and I have now launched Magic Canvas on my desktop.

When I use recovery to try and reinstall Magic Canvass, "Magic Canvass" is not on the list of available software programs. There is an option to select Touchsmart Canvass but this is not the same as Magic Canvass. Again, the option to select "Magic Canvass" does not even show up. What do I do short of erasing everything and going through a full recovery of the entire system since I have so much software and data already on the machine?
