I guess when you upgraded from home to Pro, it miss some files. Just reformat your drive and just install Pro and see if that works. Also I tryed to find: C:/windows/system32/d3d0.dll but it isnt a windows file so your Fear game must of missed some files

As X said, do a complete reformat, they try it.
