Search the net for uninstall proggies. Microsoft does not support uninstallation. It changes registry entries.

Are you running an early released version of a service pack, for example XP SP3 RC? That is one scenario in which this sort of error can occur.

I suggest you turn “automatic updates” to ‘On’ for whatever Windows you have, and let it renew the Direct X components for you.

Well you could always look on the Microsoft site and they’ll show you how to do it. Here’s a link:

Also, we will have a better understanding if you type your posts properly instead of using text language. Thanks. :slight_smile:
