You could reinstall DirectX from www.microsoft.com if you experience
problems with applications that use this extension.

Tks, I have but it has made no difference, these dll's are still missing. The
only problem I am having is playing certain DOS educational games for the
kids.When pressing install the dos window briefly flashes & then vanishes. I
thought DirectX may be causing the problem?

I do not think, that DOS applications use DirectX. I would start here:
"Troubleshooting MS-DOS-Based Programs in Windows"
(http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=314106).
