    OK. So you get an error on right-click, but what about from the command line? (You can't register advpack.dll because it is not a self-registering dll, but I'm guessing that that file is not what your error message is about).

    How are you trying to "update" DirectX? From what to what?

    Can you see dxsetup.exe in the temp folder?

    Have you had any other problems with the machine?

    Try emptying out the temp folder and rebooting the machine.

    Just for an experiment, go to Start > Run, and type:

    cmd

    In the command window, type:

    regsvr32

    What happens?

    That's what I thought. It looks like your environment variables are damaged or absent. If you have used and registry cleaners, try restoring the entries that they removed in error. Or try a restore point from before the time the problem occurred or the registry cleaner was used.

    Go to Control Panel > System > Advanced tab > Environment Variables button.

    Click on "Path" in both windows and then the "Edit" button. Copy and paste the results here.

    Great. Now please don't try to "cure" the registry any more. Registries need surgical precision, not some crap program that tries to validate entries according to patterns that are not always correct.

    In the variables, if you keep having problems, wherever it says "%SystemRoot%", put in the actual location of your Windows directory.

    So:

    C:\Windows\System32\Wbem

    instead of:

    %SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem

    (If C: is where your Windows directory is, and it is called "Windows" and not "Winnt" or something else. Make appropriate changes).
