KB960353 keeps appearing as an optional update for Microsoft Silverlight. Any reason for this... I have never installed Silverlight.

It`s not an update for Silverlight, it is the main program. It`s a browser plug in for IE & Firefox.

So I should install it ? you mean.

No you don.t need to install it.If you dont want it Run Microsoft updates manually and when it shows click on the + sign and another box opens underneath Just tick don't show this update again and that will stop it showing.

Thanks buteman and Taff... I guess if any sites need it they will say so.

As far as I know it is not needed and is not the first one that Microsoft have you downloading.

Maybe someone else can comment on whether needed or not.

I`m not aware of many websites using this technology yet but I`m sure some will start in the future.
