If your sure it's uninstalled, in CCleaner's list of installed software, click on Silverlight, then click the "Remove Entry" button (note; this is from my memory as I no longer use CCleanr).
I'm talking about where it shows it under CCleaner of the Applacations then Multimedia

When I try to click it all i get it - Analyze, Clean and Restore default state

Run this in powershell

Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | Select Name, PackageFullName

if you see silverlight anywhere, make note of the packagefullname for it, then remove it with

Remove-AppxPackage -Package "(packagefullname)"

packagefullname will look something like "package1_1.0.0.0_neutral__8wekyb3d8bbwe"

I don't see Silverlight or that package name anywhere in Powershell but its listed in CCleaner under where I said it is in #3 Post

that in itself doesnt mean much.go into registry edit and delete all registry key pertaining to silverlite.then run ccleaner again.
That's the thing I don't see it in registry edit either which is totally werid I have no idea why it's still showing up in CCleaner of the picture link I posted in #6
 
Ccleaner is GARBAGE that can ruin windows installs. Don’t ever use it to avoid issues with windows. Basically it’s malware. Don’t use any registry or windows cleaners programs.

The very fact that it’s telling you that silver light is installed when it isn’t should tell you that it’s complete garbage
