After installing the latest DirectX update from Microsoft, a number of Win2K PCs are experiencing slow performance issues. I'm making an educated guess it's the update because when I look at the Process tab in Task Mgr, it shows dxdllreg.exe tying up the cpu. When I end the process, the PC performs normally again. I did a search on the MS KB and nothing relevant showed up. Any advice is appreciated.

You should be able to stop this file from being launched from the Regsitry's Run key without causing any problems on your system. If you aren't comfortable editing the registry, then you should probably see if anyone else has other solutions.

Not sure why I never closed this question but I would have needed a more detailed explanation about how to do the registry edit, and the problem is long gone at this point - thanks for the response.
