Originally posted by Kelvy:Need NMM or LOOT to see skyrim.esm and skyrim update.esm. If you can untick mods etc you are in the game or it is there.Advise install LOOT and unofficial patches.

Originally posted by Kelvy:Skyrim and its update maybe two esms they are as one, open game in steam then you have them.Your issue is not with them but what mods you added and removed (deactivated).
Originally posted by Kelvy:You need the unofficial patches for the other 3 DLCs, install those, remove all saves from user name/mygame/skyrim/saves (all of them). Then install SKSE (third party launcher) and start game from its desktop icon (not from steam)(if you intend to mod do this).Start game from new(should not have 'continue' written there, just new.). Play game until out of Helgen (cave) then save game (this is your clean save). You may add mods from now on but read modders descriptions on what requirements are needed to make mods work.
