  • Hi,

    To assure that your updates already installed, click View Hidden Updates from Windows Update left menu. Please note that some drivers were removed from Windows Update databases due to some unknown reasons, for example I've found that my Video Card rolled out of Windows Update and I never found such compatiable driver until the moment, and my bluetooth stack too.

    Good luck

  • If you mean Windows Ultimate Extras, at least you should get 15 extras about MUI "languages pack" for Windows Vista. If you lost 'em, try a system restore or install clean Windows Vista.

    Some users are using pirated copies of Windows Vista, they won't get any extras anymore.

    Good luck

  • Don't you have to "turn on" the extras from the Windows Update window before you get them?  It's been a while since I set up my Ultimate, but I seem to remember having to click on a link to turn this feature on....
