DirectX Problems with many programs.

Hi, i'm having a lot of problems with directx, first of all when i try to start games like cs:go i have to do the cache check and it install directx but if i don't do it the game doesn't start. The problem is in games that aren't on steam on which i can't do the file check so i can't start them. The perfect example is GTA V which started before but now crashes and i can't do anything about it. I tryed to install all recent updates of windows 7 and it worked but now the problem is back, and i'm sure is directx that cause all those problems.

looks to me that the problem may lie with the virtual drive you have installed, dsoft causes a lot of problems so the first thing I would do is remove daemon tools and SPTD.

SPTD? Isn't Daemon recommending its users not to install it?

Some systems require it when Daemon Tools throws an error eg/ when virtual software is disabled.

it should be removed when you uninstall Daemon Tools, but if it doesn't then navigate to start>all programs> daemon tools> SPTD setup
and it'll give you the option to uninstall there.
