recently i was playing bioshock when xfire encountered an exception and made bioshock crash. afterwards, bioshock wouldnt open anymore. i thought it was just bioshock, but now its any full screen program.

here are the errors found in dxdiag

fixed. turned my pc off for a good 2 hours and now its solved. my guess is that when xfire crashed it temporarily exploded (metaphorically) some of the dll's that directx uses and the hard reboot of my pc made windows fixed them
