It sounds like you have deleted the program files instead of uninstalling it. go to www.filehippo.com and there you may get the same version of silverlight and install it. then uninstall it from the add remove menu.

SOURCE: How to uninstall Vista and load XP in Lenovo Y510 Ideapad

Several points:

1. Although you may prefer XP to Vista, it is probable that you are simply
more familiar with it. If you would give yourself some time to become
accustomed to Vista, you might find that you like it. I know I do.

2. You can't literally "uninstall" Vista, but if you want XP instead, you
simply do a clean installation of XP the normal way. That will format the
drive, removing whatever is on it.

3. Do you already have a copy of XP you want to install? Did it come with
your old computer? If so you need to be aware that OEM versions (such as
those that came preinstalled on computers) are permanently tied by their
license to the first computer they are installed on. If that's your
situation, your copy of XP is not available to be used on your new laptop.

4. Over and above the licensing issue in point 3, many OEM version of
Windows XP are BIOS-locked to the computer they came with, and you actually
won't be able to install it on a different one.

5. You should check with your vendor to be sure, but the warranty on your
new computer may be voided if you change operating systems.

6. Laptops often have special drivers they need for components within them.
Your new laptop undoubtedly came with all the drivers needed for Vista, but
it didn't come with the drivers needed for Windows XP. Finding and getting
the drivers you need may be a problem.

If I were in your shoes, I'd stick with Vista.

If you still want to uninstall:
The normal way to "uninstall" any operating system is to format
the hard drive and install a new OS of your choice.

After backing up any data you wish to transfer to the new OS
installation, simply boot from the WinXP Home installation CD. You'll
be offered the opportunity to delete, create, and format partitions as
part of the installation process. (You may need to re-arrange the order
of boot devices in the PC's BIOS to boot from the CD.)

Then the backed up data can be restored and applications re-installed.

You can even try a dual boot, where you have both Vista and XP on the same system. Click HERE for pictorial guide.

Use Revo Uninstaller. It will work like the Add/remove programs however it will forcefully remove the programs and also will let you remove its registry items of the Omnipage.

I downloaded netflix, one month free and 7.99 was to come out if I decided to keep it at the end of the month but it was taken the next day and I was told my free month was up


Seems like you're having weird issues. Best thing to do now is probably contacting netflix directly. As for silverlight (I can only assume that's what you meant), switching to a different browser might get that solved for you. My favorite is Chrome, but Firefox, Opera and even the newer versions of Internet Explorer seem to do OK with most of what's on the web.

I can't get netflix to work. error message N8161


2/24/2013 Netflix Error Code N8161, Protection Error Problem became a recent problem on 3 of my five XP computers, one Home Edition, the balance are XP Pro. After trying uninstalling and re-installing Silverlight, all the adobe products and Media Player I finally resolved the problem by uninstalling the current Silverlight 5, restarting the PC and then and installing old version Silverlight 4. I had to search hard to find a site that both still offered it and that I trusted. Just don't let Microsoft Updates or Netflix demand to install Silver light temp you to update. Chrome insists on the Silverlight plug in update - DON'T DO IT. Firefox and IE8 seem OK, at least for now.
