I got the following problem:
I installed DMUC mod latest version over a fresh installation of ETW
The mod was working perfectly. lurking trough DMUC forums I found about a interesting tool, advanced system care which I installed. I performed a scan of the PC.
after that, without trying to play the game I installed American Revolution Mod (I checked before, is working with DMUC).
When I tried to open a campaign it crashed during the loading of the campaign with the following error:

I uninstalled the game and when I tried to re-install, steam cannot access internet altough the connection is working perfectly. Firewall is allowing steam to work, no problem with that.
Any clue? I am suspecting the advanced system care changed something in my system.
