"wipes all other games on computer and other data like starting computer"

I cannot think of any set of circumstances by which installing an X game correctly can do that. Please see the Sticky here for the information that might allow us to help you further. Posting your DxDiag would be a good start.

That's problem with the old copy protection driver not being compatible to newer Operating Systems. To prevent it, after installing X3, update it to the latest version (2.5) with the 1.0+ -> 2.5 patch.

Is this a boxed version? If so, try applying the patches before attempting to run the game.

Does this problem happen during installation or running it for the first time?

This happened to me on Windows 8.1 - oddly Windows didn't offer an option of repairing system files or reverting to a recovery point; it only offered a re-install or "refresh" (re-install of the OS but keep personal files)

It was from using an old physical DVD copy of the game and attempting to run it with copy protection drivers. After recovering Windows and applying the latest patch immediately after installation; the game works!
