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.

My computer advises not to install silverlight

Silverlight is a plugin from Microsoft similar to Flash and Java. Installing Silverlight is not a risk for your computer, as long as you make sure to download it from a safe and secure source. is the official Microsoft site for it, and has the download link for which you can install. In Windows Vista and Windows 7, it will usually ask to verify that you want to install the software as part of its security, but just click to allow the software to install and you should be good to go.

Make sure that any programs that typically use Silverlight (i.e. Zune, etc.) are closed during the installation or check to make sure that your computer is updated and running the latest version of Windows XP. If neither of those suggestions work, try a restart.

Hello Please can u advise me how to correct a problem on my pc I tried to download Siverlight to watch dvds and videos and web cam ect but when I try to run it I get warning Message ID:1503 and says that...

Hi paula139925, the problem isn't with "Silverlight" because Silver will help enhance video viewing, it do not have anything to do with watching, or playing videos and DVDs. Silverlight may not be compatible with the Operating system you have; this doesn't mean you will not have the same quality picture. The best thing to do is write down the name of your PC and Webcam, I do not know the Manufacturers name or I would research myself. Do so, and "Update the Drivers," or from your Desktop "Start Menu" scroll to find "Windows, and or Microsoft Updates" You can update the system that way. "I hope all goes well, let me know by giving a Helpful Rating" Thanks for using Fix' Ya
