    So I got bored and I typed "dxdiag" in my run menu and I get this message.

    DirectX Files Tab: The file system.dll is missing! You should reinstall DirectX to get the latest version.

    What is causing that file to not be there? I have tried updating my version of DX9c but it says its already installed.

    Help please, thank you.

    Strange, the only two system.dll files I found in my system are .NET related. I tried to rename them and run dxdiag and it's working fine...

    Yes, system.dll is only related to .NET Framework. So, have you installed any of the .NET Framework versions?
