When you finish applying updates, do you go into the windows folder and delete everything that starts with a $, if so then this is why you cannot update Silverlight.

I think you need to contact Netflix. They have had issues with Silverlight in the past.

The only way I got my above silverlight issue fixed, was by reinstalling windows after a clean format of the drive.
