    I cant update my directX. Everytime when I run DirectX 9.0c Setup, the message "Setup was completed" appears immediately. However the diagnostic still shows 9.0. The troubleshooter was no help at all. Help?

    start, run DXDIAG & see what version you have.
    if diagnostic shows 9.0 whats the problem.
