I finally gave up on the mess that is 8 and reinstalled 7 today, and I love my PC again, it works the way a PC should again and the headache of Metro and 8's strange personality all round is gone and in its place is a machine that is once again a pleasure to use
BTW I noticed a ton of your issues seem to center around your networking...sounds like bunk drivers or bad hardware.
Before you say no...you might recall that when new versions of Windows come out oftentimes people find issues with hardware that they didn't realize it had before.
A lot of people finding memory issues with 8 that they didn't realize they had under 7 because of the way memory management works...and it's confirmed with things like Memtest...which can be OS independent.
Not saying you should go back to 8...but the mail issues, the disabling networking causing a freeze...all net related.

Being honest I wasn't actually aware you could just type it and it'd open, as start menu just displays no results so I was doing win key + R to open things like that so it's now a completely null point haha, woulda known sooner if it displayed it as a result though.
It's been that way since Vista if I'm not mistaken. You could just open the Start Menu (now Start Screen) type in the name of the program and hit enter.
It works for pretty much everything.
