NetFlix Error N8156-6022: Problem with Internet connection

NetFlix Error N8156-6022: Problem with Internet connection

I got this error several times and found out that this is related to Microsoft silverlight

You will see this error when you plan some movie online (on computer) and get an error saying there is “some problem with your internet connection”

Basically this is problem with Silverlight

To fix go to
1. Close all open Internet Explorer browsers
2. Start --> Run
3. Type %allusersprofile%
4. It will take you to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS
5. Make sure Show hidden files is ON in Tools --> folder options menu on windows explorer
6. Then browse to following directory
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Application Data\Microsoft\PlayReady
7. Delete the file MSPR.HDS
8. Start IE and play the movie.
