One thing I cannot figure out is how to update my Pokerstars.com Client, my Dad has an account and his updates constantly , yet I've not received a single one. And some of the features I could make good use of , I've searched their homepage and haven't found a damn thing....
Maybe I'm missing something? Anyone know?

If in doubt, reinstall.
If that doesn't work, drop an e-mail to their support.

re: Poker & Updating Pokerstars?
PokerStars has an annoying feature: If you uninstall it, it won't actuall remove all the files. This caused me a severe headache when it turned out I had some sort of corrupted ini-file that made me unable to connect. Uninstalling and then reinstalling didn't help - I needed to actually go and delete the entire directory and then reinstall.
You might be having a similar problem. I suggest uninstalling (using Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs) and then deleting C:\Program Files\PokerStars, before reinstallation.

Are you and your dad using the same P/C,,if so thats the answer, when he gets the upgrades, that P C is upgraded, if you are using different P/C`s then something`s wrong. When i get a Pstars upgrade on my PC, then i go to my other 2 P/C`s, the others have the upgrade to do, but if your using the same pc then thats it, when he puts it in, its in that pc
