You're going to have to provide more detail than that for anybody to help you.

Are you using any mods?
Where in the game are you crashing?

Yes i am using mods and the place the game is crashing is on the bethsteda logo.
I assume that you haven't touched your mods since the game was running fine.
It is hard to say what would be causing it, so try taking these steps.

Verify your game files.
- Right-click on Skyrim in your library
- Properties
- Local files
- Verify integrity of game cache...

Disable your mods and try to get into the game. If it works, then one or more of your mods has broken something. Enable them gradually, launching your game to test each lot until it crashes again. That will be an indication of which mod would be causing it.

If you're confident that it's not a mod, reset your SkyrimPrefs.ini and Skyrim.ini files. They are located at C:\Users\yourusername\Documents\My Games\skyrim\ if you're running Windows 7.
Delete them, then open the launcher.

Lastly, if none of that works, reinstall the game.

Maybe the loadorder of the mods is the problem. Try the Boss GUi to sort that out.

When you decided to do a "clean" re-install of the game did you:
- unsub and delete workshop mods from the DATA section of splash screen.
- deactivate and delete all Nexus and "other" mods from the game.
- delete Local Content via Steam by right clicking on game from Steam Library.
- exit Steam
- delete all files in Steam>Steamapps>Common>Skyrim folder.
- delete all files in Users>(user name)>My Documents>My Games>Skyrim
folder. (copy Saves fiolder to desktop, your saves may not work with the new install because of the mods no longer being active.)
- clean registry
- run anti-virus scan
- turn off the computer, wait a couple mins., restart computer.
- re-install Skyrim from Steam by right clicking on the game icon in your Steam library.
- verify game cache. (its safe to ignore the "1 file..." message.)
- check load order from the DATA section of the splash screen: dawnguard, hearthfires, dragonborn, HR textures 1, 2, 3.
- test game installation with new character.
