Why is my Netflix screen white with a small square at the top of the site with movie?

I fixed the problem by activating the Silverlight plugin. Open the menu button in Firefox. Click on Add-ons. This will open the Mozzilla page. Click Plugins. The Ad- ons Manager will open. It will list your ad-ons. Find Silverlight, then on the far right, choose how you want it to operate. I chose Always Activate. I had this problem on my Win7 laptop. When i tried to stream on my Win7 desktop, I got a pop-up asking me to activate Silverlight. I cllcked it and Netflix started streaming right away. Why the two Win7 machines are different, I have no idea.

You might also try another browser like Goodle Chrome.

Netflix only shows on screen in tiny square.

Make sure Microsoft Silverlight is up to date. It wouldn't hurt to reinstal silverlight anyway.

Netflix displays 'plug-in problem' when I try to watch anything

Try re downloading the silverlight driver. I had a similiar issue a few weeks ago, I delayed my update to watch something, the browser crashed, and I got the a similiar error. I tried using chrome, safari, firefox. Then I just updated the silverlight plug in, rebooted just to make sure, then worked fine.

The attached link should scan and give you a link to download.

If this doesn't work, please let me know.

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.

Cannot install silverlight in google

Download the Silverlight installer from Microsoft here:

When the download is complete, click the installer in the downloads bar at the bottom of Chrome.
Follow the on-screen instructions to install Silverlight.

Windows User Account Control might appear and ask you for permission to install. If you don't have administration privileges on the computer, please contact your system administrator to finish installation.

Select "Enable Microsoft Update" checkbox to make sure the plug-in stays updated.

If problem still occurs then use system utility tool Intel Software Reginout to fix this problem.
After scanning windows with Reginout re-install Silverlight and problem will be fixed.

it's tough to say w/out seeing the screen, it's possible your browser is blocking a portion of the site. try a different browser like google chrome, firefox, opera, or internet explorer. let me know what happens. if none of those work, could you please take a screenshot and post it to any imagehost like or photobucket and post the link here. to take a screen shot press print screen, open up ms paint and hit paste, then save the file
