    I would like to reinstall this, but I can't figure out what's the best method. Is it possible or too dangerous?

    Yeah, it's not that easy. It detects that it has already been installed and says that the installation is finished. It doesn't change anything this way. There has to be a way to uninstall it first, or trick it somehow...

    I've tried that one. It only lets you remove it if you have a backup of DirectX 8.1 on your computer. It couldn't find it, so my other option was to retrieve the backup off a Windows XP install cd. Unfortunately I don't have one because my Windows XP came pre-installed on my computer...

    Thus I can't use the utility.

    DirectX 9 Uninstaller for XP / .NET
    DirectX.Happy.Uninstall
    DirectX Eradicator 2.0

    its a dice roll to what works and you'll have to crack "happy" to get it working.

    D3DAiM, edit your sig to conform to forum specs ASAP.
    2. An image-only signature should be less than 50kb in size, and be at most 500 pixels wide and 200 pixels tall.
    4. If you want to use both text and image in your signature the image should not be more than 500 pixels wide and 100 pixels tall, and you can use up to three lines of text.
