Ok I recently downloaded a copy of Direct X 9 from Microsoft.com so that I can play an online game. However, when it gets to the stage of the instalation where it checks for all the necessary components etc. it gives my an error message that says "A necessary cabinet file could not be trusted." and then quits.

Does anyone know waht is going on?

Thanks in advance.

Follow the solutions in the exact order, and if one does'nt work go to the next. If one of them does work u can stop there.

I) Follow the steps below:
1.. Start the Administrative Tools utility in Control Panel.
2.. Double-click Services.
3.. Right-click Cryptographic Services, and then click Properties.
4.. Click Automatic for Startup type, and then click Start.

II) Try the resolutions in this recently released MS article:
