Thanks, but I am NOT downloading anymore updates untill I know for sure they are safe.

Not getting stuck again and let my firewall take care of security.

Hi all i have installed all the updates from Microsoft and am pleased to say there are no adverse effects on the computer whatsoever

Why update to DX9?

If you don't play games and dont have a card that supports DX9 then thee is no point in updating.

On the other hand - You have the laatest DX9 card and play games - Update...Update...

Installed Direct X 9.0b and all diagnostic tests ran OK. No problems at all with computer performance.

If you graphics card doesn't support DX 9 or it doesn't say it does are you OK to download it? Cos i dont think the 128 XFX GeForce 4 Ti4200 AGP 8x supports it.

No problems....
