  • Hi,

    Based on your description, I would like to suggest you try to uninstall and reinstall the latest version of Microsoft Silverlight.

    I also would like to suggest you update the CyberTech player so that it can be compatible with this update.

    Meanwhile, the http web request error was caused by IE itself:
    1. Improperly install or configure updates
    2. Security website authentications issue
    3. IE settings

    You may try the following steps to check the issue:

    1. Run IE with no add-ons. Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Internet Explorer (with no add-ons). 
    2. Try to use compatibility mode (go to tools --> Compatibility View Settings) to check the issue.

    For further research, it would be kind of you to capture a screenshot of the error page.

    Hope it helps.
