Windows 7: Do I need Microsoft Silverlight

I keep it installed + updated in case I need it someday, but I always have Silverlight disabled in all browsers. Just like Flash.

It's still disabled after upgrade

This update is offered 7 times, and there are 7 entries in Hidden Updates window. Sorry for the confusion.

This has been sitting here for as along as I can remember, it must overwrite itself judging by the date of release. I don't have any problems without it so I obviously don't use any services that require it to be installed, but at work the W7 PCs are getting the Silverlight pop-up all the time. I guess you don't have to install it if you don't need it, if you get the pop-up that tells you that you need it then install it.

Or, stop being as anal as me and just install it anyway, it won't hurt anything.

Yea that's why I don't bother hiding them and just leave it to collect dust like Boozad shows

Well, I am not offered the update anymore though, and will only get it again on next version update, whenever that may be.
