Maybe you need to update your Direct X? I don't know. I'm guessing that may have something to do with Microsoft's updates. Oh well...

Try to start the game from the setup. It should work after setting up the resolution again.

As I wrote to you on another thread, the DirectX error is caused by using "Core Design MMX etc..." option in output settings of the setup, using the other, " Microsoft Hardware.." should fix the issue

It's quite useless and annoying doing a restore system for a problem such as this one in my opinion
