Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
I noticed a Silverlight installation available on microsoft updates. What is it and is it useful for Emachines T2798 (windows XP)? I read the details but not sure if I should download it.
It is nothing more than a plugin for Internet Explorer just like Flash Player which is needed to view certain graphics on Silverlight enabled website, like microsoft website.
As of today very few website are using silverlight therefore I'd say it's neither useful nor damaging. you can install it or not, you will probably not need it unless you like to see a pretty interface of the microsoft website.

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.
