hello red1, silverlight is a plugin developed by microsoft that is used to display certain kind of content (like netflix videos). if you don't depend on it you can uninstall it from your system's control panel without a problem...

You can also choose to only disable the plugin in case you need it.

Note that Silverlight may also be used to upload files for some web based (MS) email services.
