    Have you tried uninstalling it in "Programmes"...then reinstalling it.?
    Do you use Ccleaner?.....if so click on "Applications" tab...scroll down to Multimedia...under that untick Microsoft Silverlight.
    Hope that helps.

    Windows 8.1 64 bit (updt)

    From experience, I found that Silverlight does not 'like' the Firefox browser. It should work OK in Internet Explorer.

Silverlight and Windows 8
I just had a conversation with someone at sky. I have Sky Go on my old machine and checked to ensure that if I downloaded Silverlight on to my new one it would work with Windows 8. The answer I got was "No they are yet to issue a version for Windows 8" :( Thought I would share this.
