What prompted you to install DirectX? You almost certainly have a version installed already but perhaps some software you were running recommended updating it?

As already mentioned you need to get it from microsoft. Some info here:

For this reason:

Funding[edit]
The website gets its funding from user donations, third-party advertising and adware.[8]

Ad-supported installers: FileHippo wraps some downloads with InstallCore, an adware-based download manager which may install third-party advertisements or malware on target systems.
User donations: FileHippo has a page that allows its visitors to make a donation to the website.[8]
Third-party advertising: FileHippo has a page that contains information on how advertisers can promote their products through the website. All advertising on FileHippo.com is handled through Google Adwords.
