Failure to initialize Directx

Starcraft II Technical Support
I have been off for a little while not playing Starcraft and I am now looking to get back into playing again, however when I try to load up the game it takes a while on the box saying connecting to streaming server, then I get an error thats says directx has failed to initialize. I had this problem a few weeks ago and was unable to find a solution so gave up at the time. In between I have been able to get on to play a couple of times with no problem. Searching the website has produced nothing I can find to help so I thought I would post on the forum to see what you all think! With the new season coming up it would be nice to get on.

Please install directx 9.c from Microsoft.
