    Try to dowload this redistributable DX. If you get the same error, there´s something wrong with your computer.

    Disable any form of antivirus, internet security, spyware or trojan software you may have running.

    The "..cannot be trusted" sounds like a Norton Antivirus error and should be reported to Symantec if indeed disabling Norton bypasses the error.
