standard assests

when i start a new project on unity ive been told its supost to give you the standard assets but when i start up unity it gives me nothing i have tried reinstalling unity 2 or 3 times now and have evan tried older version of unity please can anyone help?

You can import the standard packages if you click "Assets" -> "Import Package..." and navigate to \Editor\Standard Packages. Alternatively you are asked to select which packages to import when creating a new project.

In case you don't see any such packages listed, then I stand left to question if you excluded them from the installation options when you installed unity?
