I sent a email using my hotmail account and it contained two receipts.When I then clicked on sent messages and clicked on the attachments to check them something called silverlight came up and could not clear it had to come out of hotmail and then go back in.What is silverlight and how do I get rid of it.Thanks

My O/S is windows 7 Went into programs and features found silverlight and uninstalled it.Just went back to my sent messages to view the attachments and this is what I got Clicked view slide show I got need to install silverlight Clicked on Download as ZIP and got Opening refund ZIP what should firefox do with this file OPEN SAVE Clicked on Downloads same message as download as zip. This must be something to do with firefox as my son put it on the laptop last weekend when I was having a problem. Before if I clicked on the attachment it just opened same with slide show.Any advice appreciated.Do I have to re-install silverlight or un-install firefox.Apologies so long

And how few you have started have a green tick. Be a good chap and tick the box when the problem is sorted.
