on M3DZone I found a handy tool, namely a control panel for DirectX 8.0. After you have extracted the file and copied the cpl file to the system(32) directory, a new icon will appear in the control panel. Various properties can be set for all DirectX components via these DirectX Properties. A must for the tweaker who wants to change everything (positive or not):
If you’ve already downloaded DirectX8.0 and want to learn a bit more about it or customize more, download the DirectX8.0 Control Panel from our server, here. The zip file contains a .cpl file and you just have to put it in your windowssystem or winntsystem32 folder. Then go to the control panel and voila the icon is there!
