I had been using my PC to watch Netflix since around the beginning of the year, so several months now. Siverlight came installed on my PC so I never had to worry about it. I used Netflix every day and it always worked just fine, never any problems.
Then about a month ago, I went to play Netflix as I always do but it wouldn't let me watch anything because it said I needed to download the Siverlight Plug-in. It was really random because nothing had ever changed, so it was weird to suddenly get this warning out of the blue after so many months. I figured Siverlight must have updated or something, so I went through the steps to download it. But when I got to the very end of all the downloading process, it says "Siverlight cannont be installed because the same version of Siverlight already exists on this computer."
So I went into my computer programs and uninstalled everything connected to Siverlight I could find and tried to download it again. It let me download it that time, but Netflix still says I need Siverlight to watch anything. I even tried downloading the latest version of Siverlight straight from the Microsoft website rather than using the link Netflix gave me in case something was messed up with the link but it still didn't make a diference.
I thought maybe it was a problem with Netflix but when I requested help for it, they said Netflix was working fine and diagnosed it as a problem with Siverlight.
I'm really stuck because it won't let me watch Netflix without downloading Siverlight first, but it wont let me download it because I already have it. How would I go about fixing this problem?? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am getting really frustrated not being able to watch anything on my PC for so long!
