Unable to Install Silverlight, File is Corrupted


  • Hi, I tried watching netflix and was prompted that Silverlight was corrupted. So i uninstalled silverlight and tried to reinstall silverlight. Now when I try to reinstall the program I get an Error Message, saying File is Corrupt. I completely cleared my whole computer of anything silverlight, and tried a clean boot. I also tried the Fix it for me (with silverlight and without silverlight) and I am either prompted with, "unable to install" or "file is corrupted". I am using windows 8, and netflix was working properly for the last couple months and all of a sudden doesn't work. How can i install silverlight correctly?
