my newer computer fried so i have to use my older computer which has alot less ram, i'm trying to remove programs to free up some space and there's something called Microsoft Silverlight which is taking up 4,095 mb. What is Silverlight and is it necessary to have or can i remove it?

You're confusing RAM with hard drive space. Uninstalling programs doesn't free up RAM, also called memory. It frees up hard drive space.

Silverlight is a browser plug-in. It's necessary to view pages that require it. Only you can determine if it's needed or not.
