Windows 7: DLL errors. Dxdiag won't open, DXDIAGN.dll error

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

sorry only seeing your reply now as my emails are messed up. Yes if you see in that tut there was link to newer verison's. But if you don't have much on the computer. I would do a back up and clean install. Which would be the best. In my opinion.

Ah yes I overlooked that. I think I agree though, time for a fresh install! Hopefully it will improve all sorts of things. Thank you for your help!

When you have an old enough system a clean install is great speeds it back up. Also clears out a lot of stuff that you wouldn't even notice there.

No bother for the help. I don't really like going diving in and saying clean install because some people don't like that, plus i like troubleshooting :) But go ahead with the clean install will be better
