I installed Silverlight so why does Netflix require installing it?

Netflix wants Silverlight installed when ever I try to watch from my desktop.

Silverlight is installed (and re-installed) but Netflix will not go past the ‘install Silverlight’ screen, how do I over come this issue?

    I found my own answer, it is in the settings of IE. Under the 'Programs' tab there is a 'Manage Add-ons' button, inside you must 'enable' the Silverlight feature/add-on and then Netflix works fine.

    1) Go to IE Settings and Click on "Manage Add-ons"

    2) Locate Microsoft Silverlight - be sure it is "enabled"
