I have been having a problem with games and have found a solution. I need to overwrite two dll files in System 32 relating to Direct X. The two files are d3d8.dll and ddraw.dll. Obviously every time I try to overwrite the files they are instantly replaced with the SP1 newer versions. The two files in question are causing a random freeze in Direct 3d games and the problem was rectified with an AMD direct x patch which contained the two files that i am trying to put on but the SP1 installed newer files so they wont overwrite. Does anyone know how to do it please.
