Your issue is not directX, it is your graphics card. To enable aero themes, your card must have a minimum of 256mb of ram. Yours is 128mb.

ultimate 64 sp1

if you want to download the latest directx, try this microsoft link

but i think your problem is that the graphics card is too old to support the new directx11 features.

on the amd website, there are only xp drivers available for your hardware.

Welcome to the forums.
You can get Aero on cards with 128 MB just fine. infact 128 is the minimum not 256. The card in question must at least have support for Shadders 2.0 to get Aero. As well as WDDM drivers.
