    Can DX 9 be removed to install DX 8.1?

    There have been several varieties of DirectX uninstallers around over the past few years, but you should keep in mind that you'll have only about a 50-50 chance that it will work for you. Since DirectX is such an integral application, it is not uncommon to have to do a full format/reinstall of Windows to get it cleaned.

    Just food for thought.

    Thanks for the info. I just wanted to know if you could do it. I myself will just ghost my drive again. I'm glad I made a ghost image before I installed DX9. I have a new game called The Deadly Dozen and all the plants, bushes and trees are white. I have been using 41.09 dets and I even tried 40.72, 30.82, and even the leaked 42.01 dets and it doesn't fix it. I have tried ALL settings for video on and off. New game patch also didn't work. I hope it's the DX9 causing it. We'll see.

    I've had pretty good luck w/DX9 and newer games - some older DX7 games have had looked a littel weird though

    Win XP users can always use "system restore" to remove it.
    If enabled that is...

    I've tried using system restore before and I never got a clean restore. There were always some kind of problems. It's no big deal to me, I will just stick with Norton Ghost to make my own 'system restore'.

    i always keep my important files in a separate partition from my OS - so I'm always ready for a fresh install if I don't like the way something is working.

    I used to use different partitions, but then one day my hard drive went completely bad. It made an awful sound. After that, I always backup data to CD and I make a ghost image once a week. I figure taking 7-10 minutes to ghost my drive is better than trying to recreate everthing I had.
