Fix Netflix "Error N8156-6013" in Virtualbox

Until Netflix decides to move away from retarded old Silverlight, we have to deal with their cryptic errors. One I've experienced a lot was "N8156-6013", which says something about the System Date and Time. But if you know for a fact that the date and time are right, there's a very, very easy fix over at Curiositatis Captivus.

Click through there, but for the sake of documentation (i.e., if the blog mentioned happened to go down), the fix is deleting this file:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\PlayReady\mspr.hds

That is all.
