Yesterday, I went to download a game. It requires DirectX 9.0c, but mine was DirectX 9.0b. As I googled the answer for 6 hours, I finally found out that I need to uninstall my DirectX. Once my computer rebooted, I didn't have any DirectX at all! I tried to download the latest DirectX, but when I was installing, an error said ' An internal error occurred. Please refer to DXError.log and DirectX.log in your Windows folder. ' I went to my Windows folder but I can't find any of it. Then, I went to Start > Run and typed dxdiag, normally a box pops out but now there is an error saying 'Windows cannot find dxdiag'. Now, I can't even start my games and my iTunes. Can somebody help me to download back DirectX? The Microsoft sites aren't helping.

Thanks, I've downloaded it. But there is an error saying, ' Setup failed. Errors were encountered while running a process and setup could not continue. Check the log files for more information. Error Code: S1023' . What do I do now?

Try running System Restore, at least it would get you back where you started.

Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore.

When this opens make sure that "Restore my computer to an earlier time" is chosen, and click on Next>.

The dates appearing in bold are the dates that you can restore to, click on the date that you want and then click Next> to start the System Restore. This may take a long time to complete, and when it is done it will restart your computer. When the computer restarts and you have logged on as the administrator a Restoration Complete page will appear, click on OK to complete the process
.

Thanks DC3 you took the words right out of my mouth. I figured if the install failed a restore would best.
