    Also this should be posted, it's from where the files are hosted. I guess some user, it didn't work for them to well...

    :: Windows 2000 Uninstallation Instructions
    Here are the instructions which are exactly the same as the ones included in the RAR.

    vorte[x]'s DirectX 9 Beta Uninstallation
    ========================================

    WARNING: This uninstallation method is no
    where -NEAR- clean, but I have tested it
    on my 2000 w/ SP2 box, and it seems to get
    the job done. I take no responsibility
    whatsoever on what it does to your machine
    or other machines.

    NOTE: This procedure is bound to fail on
    Windows XP as the DirectX Eradicator program
    does -NOT-, I repeat, does -NOT- support
    Windows XP. Don't say I didn't warn you.

    Reading past this line acknoledges that you,
    the user, has read and understand fully the
    precautions / warnings stated above and that
    the creator of the instructions and
    applications will not be held liable for any
    mishaps.

    -----------------------------------------

    1) Reboot into safe mode.

    2) Execute the DirectX Eradicator program
    already included in the Eradicator folder.
    I take no credit for this program. It was
    developed by Firecat and you can find his
    website @ (http://www.freewebz.com/firecat)

    3) Reboot back into normal Windows mode.

    4) Delete the Restore DirectX shortcut on the
    desktop. It was meant to restore DirectX from
    the Windows 2000 CD. We ain't going to do this.

    5) Execute my DirectX9 cleanup batch file in
    the Cleanup folder.

    6) Download and reinstall Microsoft's DirectX 8.1
    from http://www.microsoft.com/directx

    7) Reboot to finalize DirectX install.

    8) You're done. To ensure no time-bombed files
    were left behind, set your date ahead one year
    and try executing a direct3D / openGL application.

    :: Windows XP / .NET Uninstallation Instructions
    Here are the instructions which are exactly the same as the ones included in the RAR.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    << DirectX 9 Uninstaller for XP / .NET >>
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    This uninstaller uses your original XP or .NET CD to restore your original DirectX 8 files.
    Extract these files to C:\DXTEMP! You must extract these files to this directory and run
    the UnDx9.bat that uninstalls the DIrectX files in SAFE MODE. Enjoy!

    Re:

    I agree. Uninstalling DX 9 beta may not work to well, even with a restore.
