Windows 7: Windows upgrade

Windows upgrade

I have a HP Pavillion Dv6 Note book with Windows 7 Home Premium installed,today for reasons i don't understand it up-graded it self to Windows Ultimate.
I do not have a disk to do this,my update settings are set to inform me of any updates-then i can choose to update or not,the was no such warning.
Further investigation through Windows restore shows that a restore point was established today at 6:14:58 for a Windows Anytime Upgrade,something that i didn't order it to do.I do not own a disk so the only way this could have happened is over the net-again something I didn't authorize When i check the system properties it shows that it has been activated and has a product id so it appears to be legit.......except i didn't do anything to cause this to happen! .Whats going on?

This is very odd. It's not like Microsoft to give away a version of Windows 7. Windows 10, yes, but Windows 7, no.

If this is legit and it's really activated, count yourself as getting an unexpected bonus.
