Can't run FIFA 17 and DS4Windows

I recently did a fresh install of Windows 10 because I had some virus problems and my drives had a lot of unused files so I decided to save my important data on a usb stick and do a clean install.
So everything was working fine until I downloaded Origin and FIFA 17, plus DS4Windows because I've been using that program to play games with my DualShock 4.
Everytime I try to start FIFA either through Origin or run the .exe file directly, it just doesn't work. The Origin window disappears like it should when you start a game, but the FIFA launcher doesn't appear and after a few seconds the Origin window reappears like when you close a game.
Same thing with the DS4Windows.exe file. When I try to run it, the blue loading circle appears next to my cursor for a few seconds but then nothing happens.
Bear in mind, I can run other .exe files like Firefox, Steam, Origin without any problems, it's just these that don't work.
I haven't tried downloading/running any other games since the fresh install, but I might give them a try.
Oh and I have already tried running them both as administrator and also in several compatibility modes, but it didn't work.

With FIFA 17, did you at least attempt to Repair the game and see if that fixed it? Sometimes doing a Verify (Steam)/Repair (Origin) command on a game will fix a game that refuses to load.

Yes, I tried it once but it didn't help.
