Hello !

I am running Win 7 Home Premium 64.

In Control Panel > Windows Update, I unchecked the box for the option Updates for other MS products, but it disappeared completely.

I cannot restore the update for other products. It is a very strange behaviour, IMHO.

How can I fix ?

Thanks in advance.

One of the workarounds according to this Microsoft thread is to install Silverlight and at the end of the install make sure the box is checked to 'Update Silverlight and other Microsoft products'
