    Can anyone tell me if Direct X 9.oc can either be removed or changed to 9.ob? I installed 9.oc onto my grandsons computer only to learn that 9.oc has issues with some video cards and his is one of them. So as far as I know it is either get rid of 9.oc or buy him another video card. Any help would be appreciated.

    No you are SOL. you cannot remove DirectX 9.oc once it's installed on your computer.
    There is a program floating arround that claims it can be done but it doesn't work on XP. I know I have tried it.

    What video card is he using? An Nvidia?

    You don't mention what version the operating system is?

    Perhaps you can restore from an earlier point? Maybe a program like GoBack was preinstalled if it is of name-brand manufacture?

    I'm running DirectX 9.0c with an eVGA NVIDIA GeForce 6800 video card on XP Home Edition SP1 with no trouble at all.

    He has XP and it is a geforce mmx 440. My son found a program called directx-dx9uninstaller but it is beyond my ability and he is away at college. I can't do a restore point because 9.oc was installed right after a fresh format. Thanks

    You can always reformat.
    Or just break down and buy a better card that address's any known issues with 9.0c

    Right click on the desktop.

    Go into properties

    Click on advanced.


    click on the Nvidia tab icon. You should have one.

    A sub menu will open up on the left


    Click on Performance and Quality

    Click the down arrow on Application Profiles.

    You may have a list of games to choose from.

    I have mine set on Medal of Honor.

    try to run the game in question.

    Hope that helps.
