I have recently installed direct x 9.0c but when i go to play a pc game (delta force land warrior), the game will not work at all. Previously i was using direct x 9.0b and the game worked fine, so now i want to return to the previous edition. How can i do this? (i want to keep it simple) I am using Windows 98 SE

You will also need to download Directx v 9.0b

Direct X is a part of the Windows operating system and therefore cannot be uninstalled! It may be that you need to upgrade drivers for your graphic card or get an update for the games you want to play.

From Microsoft Knowledgebase:

DirectX 9.0 is a system component and cannot be uninstalled. If there is a problem with the DirectX installation, it can normally be resolved by shutting down all running applications and reinstalling. As mentioned previously, DirectX 9.0 is fully backward-compatible with titles written for previous versions of DirectX. If you are having other problems after installing DirectX 9.0, these can often be resolved by installing updated drivers for your display card, audio card, or input device.

As with most software, users of Windows ME and Windows XP have the option of creating a "System Restore point" before installing. System Restore points allow you to roll back your operating system to a time before the software was installed. If you feel there are special circumstances which may necessitate removal of DirectX. It is recommended that you create a System Restore point. Windows 98, Windows 98 SE, and Windows 2000 do not support the "System Restore" feature.
