  1. I've been having a problem with installing games recently.

    I have installed games in a long time but recently when i try to install a game, setup never finishes because when its gets to the "updating directx" it just stays like that. My PC doesn't freeze but my cpu usage is high. I've waited 15min for the update to finish but it doesn't!

    Please Help

    What applications are you attempting to install? Are you positive they are compatible with Windows 7? Have you attempted to uninstall Direct X and then manually re-install it? To verify compatibility, the Microsoft Windows 7 Compatibility Center is available here: and can be used for both hardware and software concerns.
