Minor problem with Windows 7 Media Center

I had installed NetFlix and Internet TV update on my Windows 7 Media center

(Windows 7, 64 bit, ultimate).

One fine day, my McAfee Ant virus decided to go bonkers and I had to do a system restore. no sweat.

However, now my media center does not have the updated features installed from the media center update and of course netflix, internet tv as well.

they dont show up in the menu for me to reinstall
they dont show up in the menu for me to use them
i tried uninstall and reinstall media center to no success
i tried the mcupdate.exe -MediaCenterRecoveryTask with no success

I see internet tv & ready play as installed in add/rem progrs and tried uninstalling them to see if they will show up in media center again, no success.

Anyone has any clue how to fix this this?

Thanks a bunch
