Hello, can I remove direct x 9.0a or install 8.1 over the top? Thanks.

What trouble are you having with it? Also is it the latest version of Direct X as there were a few teething troubles with Direct X9 at first and many versions are out. You want the latest version that came out in May this year.

If you use

You can find a Direct X uninstaller. I do not have any experience with these programs though

I had installed direct x 9.0a a while ago so I'll nip off to microsoft's site to see if there's a newer one. If not I'll try out the site you linked up above. I posted elsewhere with reference to my pc "freezing" when I play games, I've tried all kinds of things with no success so I'm clutching at straws now ;-) Thanks again, I'll be back (baby) ha
