I've seen a few posts concerning this behavior.
Posting here just in case anyone has a solution.
Every time I come back to the ASP.NET site the Silverlight click to install dialog opens.
I've uninstalled and refreshed Silverlight, have even developed and ran samples on my dev machine.
(XP Pro SP2 .NET Framework 3.0/3.5, IE7.0.5, Windows Live OneCare v2.)

This prompt should only appear every 7 days if you do not have Silverlight installed. And currently there are separate cookies for www.asp.net, forums.asp.net, and weblogs.asp.net. So at the most you should be prompted once every 7 days for each of those
Which version of the Silverlight runtime do you have installed, 1.0 or 1.1?

Thanks for the response. [;)]
Current version is: 1.1.20926.0
I've been google'ing and watching the Silverlight forums, see a lot of issues like this being posted right now.
I haven't tried any of the .NET 3.5 registry hacks I've seen posted but I have checked all of the registry permissions for Silverlight.
So far I've un-installed it and re-installed at least 3 times since this version was released.
At this point I've decided to just be patient and wait.

Try these steps...
(Worked for me.)
Those steps resolved this issue on XP Pro SP2 with .NET 3.5

I get the "Install SilverLight" window EVERYTIME I come to
www.asp.net too, and it is VERY annoying. I have my browser set to Medium High, so I guess I don't save cookies. Please turn off the pop-up. I am almost to the point of not visiting
www.asp.net because of this popup. I have always thought pop-ups were a bad idea, and your site is living proof that they are. It pops up not just for the home page, but every page I go to after the home page. By passing
Windows blocking of pop-ups is a bad idea.

I'm not a fan of it either.
Anyway, this is how I disabled the modal popups.

This is just a quick work around I did to get this thing out of my hair. I am sure this will break something in the future, but I haven't taken the time to see where PageGate is used in other places, if it is. It will probably also cause some undesirable
behavior if they implement a new Feature that depends on PageGate.
Edit: Other Microsoft Websites, such as MSDN, also have this modal. You can extend the user script to apply to more domains by adding more @include to the script, and also making sure that the script the originally contains the PageGate
function is blocked. If PageGate is defined in the actual source, I don't think this will work.

As a ASP.NET developer I find this problem very troubling. It should just work without having to jump through hoops. End users will not put up with this.

Today we pushed out a site update which should address this continual prompting issue. Please let us know if you continue to experience problems in this area!
