DirectX Launcher Problem

Hi, I have a problem here. DirectX launcher wouldn't launch at all. I have tried the 'sfc / scannow' command in the Command Prompt too but the results were good therefore I assume that there are no corrupted files inside my comp. I have even used Registry Cleaners regularly but it still can't work.

Get latest DirectX here: Download DirectX 9.0c (Jun 10) - FileHippo.com and install it. Restart system. See if your problem's solved.

I have downloaded it from the website you gave me but the previous dxdiag is still there. Do I need to delete it? And where is the new dxdiag file located at? I tried to run dxdiag but instead, they ran the old one. I can't run the new one.

You need not to delete anything. Just run the setup and restart and see if your problem gets solved. The components are just updated. There's no ''new'' location of dxdiag.

After a bit of searching, it seems this problem is a bit uncommon (https://www.google.ca/search?sourcei...w=1152&bih=739). Time for a clean Windows re-install I suppose?

Owh forgot. I did make some changes to the 'Zone' part under 'Internet Settings in the Registry Key. Could that be the cause?

Pretty much, but you can always revert back to the original setting that you had incase you're in doubt, I suppose.
