Question DirectX redistributable Error when installing programs

Any time I try to install a program requiring a DirectX Redistributable, I get the following "An internal systems error has occurred. Please refer to DXError.log and Directx.log in your windows folder to determine problem"

I've tried turning off my anti-virus, running registry analysis/repair with CCCleaner and System Mechanic, installing as administrator, and a few other things.

It's happened with multiple programs, multiple versions of the redistributor from multiple sources.
