Please, next time post this in the "Windows" part of the forum.

Did you try installing it in "Safe Mode" and did you try redownloading the file?

When you boot up, keep pressing your "F8" key, it will prompt you how you would like to boot windows, select "Safe Mode"

Post back!

i tried installing direct x 9.0c.... i followed correct steps of installing it. first check the agreement then it should proceed to installation. but after i clicked next, the installation was fast as lightning you couldn't see the status of the installation process... after that the message appears: "the components installed are now ready for use"... that's it... usually, after installing direct x, the computer asks you to reboot, but this time its none... what's wrong... i even tried installing on safe mode but still doesnt work... please help... its urgent... some games and application wont run unless installed by directx 9.0c.. thanks

what os are you running.
And type dxdiag in Run.
It tells you what version you got and stuff like that.
