Okay so 2 days ago i installed an enb (project ENB). At first i had a problem, it crashed because "d3d9X(...).dll" was not found in my computer..and if i was to remove the d3d9.dll file the gaem would work. I then installed direct x on my computer ( i just reinstalled wndows 3 days ago). After that it worked just fine...for a day. Yesterday moring i played skyrim and it ran just fine. Then windows wanted a reboot for a update ( i don t know what it was..my mistake, not reading the update.) so my computer rebooted. after that skyrim woudl crash before the bethesda logo. ("Skyrim stopped working"). If i remove the  d3d9.dll file from the skyrim directory my game will work, but of course it looks weird. 

My direct x is up to date and my AMD Catalyst is up to date too :D


I have directx11 on my computer now. i don t know what to say..here s a picture of the game before it started crashing


 thank you in advace

d3d9.dll is the ENB and should be placed in Skyrim root folder ONLY, along with ENBhost.exe plus some other files.


Suggest you try reinstalling ENB and other files as something has gotten messed up somewhere.
