Windows98se Problems after Directx Update

hallo, im new so here is the problem

i got a 400mhz cpu with 88mbs of ram and a SiS 530 ver vid card

i had reccently did some updates from microsoft and updated directx from 8 to 9  after that the cpu had began to run slow, so i fixed directx and got it back to 8,[ i forgot how i did it] but it still is running slow after defrags, nortons fixes and antiviruses. IM struggling on to what is wrong with it , it runs slow at start up it takes more time then it did before the upgrade . it loads programs slow and continues .. im stumped to what is wrong with it , please if you can help it would be great if you could.

Greetings, Dragonsgirl!
   Check your startup programs and see there are anything there that is slowing you down. Go to Start > Run and type msconfig and click OK. When the Configuration Utility is open, select Startup. Uncheck all the programs except Sys Tray and Scan Registry. Click OK to close and reboot. If the slow startup is gone, load back the programs one by one until you find the culprit.

Best wishes, war1

If you can remember how you change DirectX back from version 9 to 8.1, it may be relevant. DirectX does not have an uninstaller.

Dragonsgirl,
   Like to know how much resources your computer is using. From Control Panel, select System > Perform. What percentage of System Resources is free?

Use Directx Eradicator.

After removing Directx, reinstall Windows. This will reinstall the orignial version of Directx. Check if that helps.
