Unhappy Saints Row: The Third won't start!

Hey dear Forum
im new here and sorry for my bad english.
i already searched for my problem but they wasn't really helpfull.
So i bought Saints Row: The Third today and installed it normal, so i have DirectX 10 and after i started it, it asked my if i want to play it with DirectX 9 or DirectX 10 & 11, so i selected DirectX 10 & 11. Didnt work, the launcher crush down and a Windows Pop-up say "Saints Row The Third doesn't work anymore". It was a little bit strange for me so i tried with the Option "DirectX 9" and it work.
So i said "ok i can play it with DirectX 9 to, no problem" but after i try to start the Campagne or Co-op campagne and select "Easy, Normal" or "Hard" the Loading screen appear and it crush down and a windows Pop-up say "Saints Row the Third doesn't work anymore". Can anyone help me? I hope i didnt wasted my money.
Maybe some informations about my PC, its a little bit old and i know, its not the best PC like those now in the market but it's really ok for those games i play at the moment.
Windows Vista™ Home Premium (6.0, build 6000)
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E4500 @2.20GHz(2CPUs), ~2.2GHz
DirectX 10
2046MB RAM
if you need some more informations i can say them, and if it's allowed maybe some german people can add me on steam. (:
Thanks

update/reinstall directx and run a registry cleaner to fix problems with your computer and see if that fixes your problem.

It is a program that scans your computer for problems and fixes them.

The only one ive ever used is advanced systemcare but im sure there are better registry cleaners available. You can usually find a key for the pro version on youtube.

Your CPU and ram or both on the low end for requirements, what is your GPU? If it doesn't have shader model 3 support it probably not going to work.

That would be your CPU there you listed again. Without knowing your GPU(graphics card) it's difficult to say if it will run the game.
