Windows 7: No Internet TV or Netflix in Media Center

No Internet TV or Netflix in Media Center

Ok, I have a relatively new computer (6 months old Alienware) with Windows 7 Ultimate. I never knew there could be an option for Internet TV or Netflix in Media Center until my wife got a new computer two days ago (Windows 7 Home Premium) and I saw that she had a button for both Internet TV and Netflix. I've updated everything I can but still no option for the internet TV. Neither my wife's computer or mine has a tv tuner, but I'm told that doesn't matter. Any thoughts on what I need to do to get these options in my Media Center? Appreciate any help on this. Thanks in advance.

Go to "SEttings" > "General", then select "Automatic Download Options". Check the box to "Automatically download Windows Media Center Data between the following times", then click "Download Now" at the bottom.

CCleaner killed it for me - had to quit using it, but the fix was to go into add/remove programs and then add/remove Windows components - find Media Center & UNINSTALL it - reboot and go back to add/remove components and REINSTALL WMC - worked for me every time ccleaner messed up NetFlix and TV add-ins
- You will also have to redo your desired settings

Deleted Windows media center..

uninstalled and re-installed.
still no internet tv option.
I realized that I have it on my laptop..
then I realized that both of my wireless units have the option.
my main unit is hard-wired and it's the one without the internet tv option...
