I have silverlight installed and have not noticed any changes at all. But if
i wanted to uninstall it, it's listed under my installed updates with all
the rest. I even have a patch for crysis in there. Its wierd that you can't
see any optional updates because I think I've installed 3 or 4 optionals and
they are all there with the rest. Is there some setting that you may have
changed? I know I'm not much help, sorry.
