when i run DXSETUP.EXE
from my LOD cd
i pressed INSTALL DIRECTX
then like this copying file screen comes up and it finishes less than second
then it goes DIRECTX SETUP COMPLETE
then i press OK then CLOSE

but nothing actully gets installed

not even the dxdiag.exe tool

then i download dxdiag.exe from microsoft and run it
most of Directx files are missing

so i'm sure nothing was installed

any ideas?

Your sure you don?t have a virus, I have seen the klez stuff up windows installer before, wouldn?t let me install a new version of Norton corporate edition on an infected pc, just kept coming up with ?installation complete? after a couple of seconds.

Cheers
