Type Regedit in Run and press enter.

  • now select Find from the Edit menu
  • and enter name of the software you want to delete from registry
  • After searching it will display a Registry Value
  • Delete that file from Registry and Restart computer 

But deleting manually from registry require very attention deleting wrong file from registry may affect your system.

  • Therefore i recommend you any Registry cleaner Software to clean registry very easily
  • Wise Registry Cleaner is a free registry cleaner software available on internet.
  • download and install it 
  • run Wise Registry Cleaner and clear registry in a second.

2. Find the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftSilverlight and select

3. Choose delete on the edit menu, and yes to confirm

4. Click Exit on the file menu to exit the editor

5. Reinstall your Silverlight
