Try using a different browser, so if you use Internet Explorer try Google Chrome or Firefox.

Welcome to the Forum.
Can you check to see if you have Silverlight installed on your device? If you don't you can do it through the following link.

Hi Graeme, and thanks for the welcome. Silverlight is installed on the PC as everytime I have attemted to install the sky go desktop, I have uninstalled both programmes and started afresh. I have used Revo uninstaller to make sure all files were deleted so I was always starting from a clean slate. I have tried to take a screen shot of the screen I get but I can't paste it in this forum. Any help would be appreciated

I have the same problem, tried to install Sky go Desktop. Said I needed to install Silverlight and uninstall old Sky Desktop. Already had the latest version of Silver light, but never the less uninstalled this as well as the old version of Sky Desktop. Re installed the latest version of Silverlight three times now, re booting Vista Home Premium each time but still I get Silverlight needs to be installed as well as Uninstall the old version of Sky Desktop, with these being displayed you don't get the option of downloading Sky go.

Hi graeme, thanks again. It said it was checking and could take up to 2 minutes, then said I had it installed LOL. If I click on the desktop icon, it just takes me to an internet page. This is bonkers

Hi Samantha, thanks for your help. Just looked and I hace a 32 bit operating system. I have tried to take a screen shot of the window it takes me to but I can't paste it on here. It is basically a redirection page. When I click the Sky Go desktop icon, it just sends me to this redirected page.
Wish I could show you !!!
