It could be caused by a corrupted third-party entry, try this:
Create a folder, say, TempCPL in My Documents. Using Windows Explorer, navigate to \Windows\System32 and display the files as Details. Click View > Arrange by Type and look for files with .cpl as the extension. You may have to Show Extensions in Folder Options > View Tab to see them.
Check from their Properties which are not Microsoft. Move the non-Microsoft .cpl files one by one to the new folder and open Control Panel after each move to see if the problem has gone. After detecting the culprit, leave it in the TempCPL folder and move back the other .cpl files. If the problem is not a non-Microsoft file, repeat the procedure for the Windows .cpl files. There are copies of the Windows files in C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386.

How do I get Netflix off my computer and on to the Apple TV


Depending on your computer, you can use the following:

Windows:
To Remove many programs, go to Control Panel.
  • On the Start menu, enter Control Panel in the search box and select Control Panel from the results.
  • Select Programs > Programs and Features, and then select the program.
  • To remove the program, select Uninstall or, if that's not available, Change.
  • Follow the directions on the screen
MAC:
  1. or apps downloaded from the Mac App Store, just go to Launchpad by clicking the icon in the Dock or pinching the thumb and three fingers together on the Trackpad. Find the app you want to remove, hold down its icon until you see it jiggles, then hit the "X" button to delete it.
  2. For apps downloaded from other websites or transferred from discs, on your desktop, click Go > Applications > look for the programs you want to uninstall, drag them to the Trash (or use Command + Del). Then open Trash and hit Empty Trash option. That's it.
  3. Next, clean remnant files and folders. Some programs may have created additional files or folders when you installed them. It's best to clean them as well. To do so, click Go > Library. Here find the items related to these programs and remove them all. Be sure to look up the ~/Library/, ~/Library/Application Support/ and ~/Library/Preferences/ folders.
Note: if you want to remove applications that were installed using the Mac package installers (on a .pkg format), you'll be prompted to enter the user password before they are moved to the Trash.

Put Netflix on Apple TV
  1. Launch the App Store app from your Home screen.
  2. Make sure you're on the Featured tab.
  3. Navigate to an app you want to download.
  4. Click on the app icon.
  5. Click on Get for free (or free with in-app purchase) apps, or the price for paid apps.
  6. Click Buy to confirm.
