Silverlight Issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I removed Silverlight since I never used it. Now, Windows Update keeps asking me to install it even though

    I clicked "hide" on the update.

    Other updates that I've hidden don't show up anymore, but Silverlight does. This is very annoying. I don't

    want to use Silverlight. Can you please fix Windows Update so that it stops asking me all the time ?

    Thanks !

    p.s. It is update KB2512827

  • Hi,

    Why do you not want to install the silverlight?

    The silverlight will not take up too much space if you install it. And some videos just require you to install the silverlight if you want watch them.

    If you do not want to the system to ask you to install the silverlight, you can click the control panel then choose the system and security, then just choose the turn automatic updating off in windows update. 

    Hope it can help you.

    Best Regards.
