DX9 giving problems patch on MS update site.

Delete everything from the internet logs folder and reboot. (It's being caused by ZA.)

Thank you both for that have carried out both pices of advice.Dan the Confused is there an easy way to explain what happened and how were you directed to ZA?

true vector engine is a part of za i ended up sacking za for exactly the same problems and now happily use sygate from this site download section.

Agree with Johnnyrocker, True Vector is used by ZoneAlarm as is the Internet Logs folder. Can't say for sure what caused it, although the DX9 update looks a likely candidate. (Did it work by the way?)

  Dan the Confused 21:47 14 Jun 2004

I still use ZA quite happily though...

  Taw® 10:45 16 Jun 2004

Yes many thanks again since loading the update and emptying the log folder all has been well. I have used ZA for a nunmber of years and has never caused me a problem till now.
