What is Silverlight?
Why do I need it?
Secunia says my Silverlight4 is outdated. When I try to install Silverlight5 I am told that Silverlight is not compatible with my 64 bit system. What gives??

Joe,

A simple explanation of Silverlight is here.

Not sure where U got your information from but it is fully compatible with 64Bit systems & version 5 is also compatible with 64Bit browsers. Details here:

If U wish to upgrade to version 5 click this link & let it run.
