64bit win7 directx - new install - somthings wrong here

so i did a fresh install a few weeks ago and im guessing iv done this in the wrong order probbly should have installed direct x first ? bascily iv installed all windows updates and as far as programs go this is what i have - i installed the newest nvida drivers from nvs site and i see no reference to direct X in my installed prgrams but yet my games seem to run or somethings up

i tried running the dx webinstaller but but nothing

I installed 32bit Windows recently on new system and installed directx 9.0c from offline installer before any Windows updates and nVidia drivers and it didn't show up in Installed Programs.

Installed it again after Windows updates and nVidia drivers but it is still not there in Installed Programs but games are running fine.

If you're unhappy with performance you could do it over following the steps, tools and methods in Clean Reinstall Windows 7 since nobody has ever complained about the results and most are thrilled.

I also had bunch of Visual C++ entries with different version numbers when I had many games installed.
