Try searching in SpotLight for Utilities. It found mine. Hope that helps.

Sorry I thought you moved the whole folder. Then search for utilities in that folder like, Activity Monitor, Audio Midi Setup, Disk Utility. That should work as long as they are still on the Hard Drive. Let me know if you find it.

The applications would be on the Mac OS X Install discs, but they are inside packages (pkg files). So you'd have to reinstall the whole system, but thanks to this little App called Pacifist, you can go hunting for the contents of that pkg file and find your utilities folder contents.
