As I find it to hard to find a specific program in the overview list, I suggest to add a filter box.
I have made a small mockup as a attachment.
It only shows the filter box, and not the filtered result.
Edit: I’ve added a new image showing the filtered result.

I would opt for an automatic suggestion when I start typing in the search field (after pushing ctrl + f).
:-TU I have also the same demand: a filtering or a search function.
I add a function for search and delete the obsolete programs (who missing on HD).
Isn’t that what the purge button is for?
