Messing with your DirectX installation is always a risky business.

I'd suggest you try and download the complete DirectX 9.0c distributable from the Microsoft site and try re-installing.

Bare in mind that if you screw with a DX installation under XP/2k(?) that it could destabalise your entire system becase DX is part of the system. I've seen some nasty errors along these lines that could only be solved by reinstalling the entire operating system.
