Anytime Upgrade Issue
I recently upgraded from Vista Business to Ultimate using the Windows Anytime
Upgrade feature. First off, I had to reinstall certain programs after this
upgrade because they no longer worked (example, Windows Mobile Device
Center). But that, I solved on my own. Just thought I'd mention it.

The real unimportant issue I ran into was that it deleted all of the default
games that come with Vista (like Chess Titans and Hearts). I really don't
mind all that much, but I find it very disheartening when I'm showing Vista
to a gamer and there is nothing in the Games Explorer (except Hold'em now
that I've downloaded it). Does anyone know how I can fix this and/or is
there somewhere on the Microsoft site to download the games (I haven't been
able to find it so far)?

Thanks in advance.
