I installed silverlight 4 beta on my mac, hoping it would fix the black box that comes up when i go on an silverlight using site. It didnt, so i tried to uninstall it and downgrade to silverlight 3, and it will not let me, saying i have a newer version installed. I tried typing "sudo rm /private/var/db/receipts/com.microsoft.installSilverlightPlugin" in terminal, which let me install, but crashed my browser whenever i went on a silverlight site. Any help for either of these?

Snow Leopard? plugins in snow leopard changed that they also stamp a receipt in /var/db/ -- search for Silverlight receipts in these various receipt locations that mac has.
