More Netflix/Silverlight issues... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Thanks in advance for any help regaurding my thread. I've been trying to troubleshoot for nearly two weeks off and on.
    Here's my issue:

    Around two weeks ago I tried to get on netflix through the Google Chrome browser and the "this plug-in has crashed" screen of death appeared. SO, I just hit refresh and nothing happened. So, I tried it out in Firefox, same thing. Now...the interesting part is when I'm in IE8, I can hear the video being played but not being displayed. Needless to say, I was stumped. I've uninstalled silverlight many times and even regressed to 3.0 and the same issue occurs. 

    I really need some new Ideas about how to fix this issue. I've been wracking my brain. Thanks again.
