I know what you mean about all those issues because my laptop was doing the same thing. I found that it wasn't just a problem with Silverlight, though, at Universal Sports. I went to Adobe and installed the latest Flash and Shockwave Flash. I also made sure I had the latest Sun JAVA update. Everything seemed to straighten out after I got all the updates. I also received a new Flash update this morning ( 10.1 ). It wanted to install immediately when I started my laptop.
