This dxdll.exe comes up opening Quick View Plus when I start my computer. It points to the application and is highlighted to the right of Quick View Plus.

I found it in the start up of msconfig and removed the check mark. Under the general tab, this is a Microsoft DirectX DLL Register and sits in the C:\windows\system. Size is 43.5 KB. It has a file version of 4.9.0.902.

Under the product name, it states Microsoft DirectX for Windows Operating system.

I have Windows Millennium and I did download the newest DirectX, IE6, Outlook Express and the Media 9 player today.

What is causing this and is it needed?

An initial investigation shows that DXDllRegExe appears to be a MS patch, that reregisters some of your DirectX DPlay DLL's.

[It's function has also been described as 'unknown'!]   Guess it would be wise therefore to leave it.
