999 saves that is overkill why dont you just move most of the saves to a seperate folder that skyrim wont try to load the saves from and keep like 20-100 saves

So what is causing the problem? Why doesn't anyone fight with thier weapon? If anyone has an answer I would really like to know how to fix or how to start over. I tried to start a new game, but it is still the fists no weapons.

I have not a clue. I've never heard of this problem before.

My only suggestion would be to wipe every last trace of Skyrim from your PC, and do a clean install. Of course this involves the loss of all your saves.

Here is how to do it though.

1 - Delete local content of Skyrim within Steam
2 - Navigate to the Skyrim directory and physically delete the folder (Uninstalls usually don't do this.)
3 - In your "Documents" folder, open the "my games" folder and then delete the "Skyrim" folder
4 - click start, type into the search box "%appdata%" and hit enter
5 - Back up one directory (Out of "Roaming") and open the "Local" folder, then delete the "Skyrim" folder
6 - Empty your recycling bin
7 - Now clean your windows registry using "CC Cleaner"
8 - Reboot your PC

Now ALL traces of skyrim are gone. Re-Install from scratch.

PS - After you have completed a fresh installation of Skyrim, create a Steam Local Backup so you don't have to go through the long process of downloading the huge game in the future.

1 - Complete your fresh install
2 - Open Steam
3 - Click the "Steam" Drop-down menu in the upper left of the Steam Window
4 - Select "Backup and Restore Games..."
5 - Follow the on screen instructions and save the backup to the location of your choosing.

Good luck, boss! That's an odd problem.

Yup, every copy of Skyrim is linked to Steam. So even if you installed from disk, the first think you'd have to do is go to your Steam Library, right click on Skyrim and "Delete Local Content"

Just make sure that after you "Delete Local Content" you go and hand delete all three Skyrim Directories, because they will still be on your hard drive. (And so will all your mods, textures, etc...)

Directory 1 is Steam\Steamapps\common\Skyrim (Or whatever. This is your main content directory)
Then there is My Documents\my games\Skyrim
Then there is C:\Users\<Your User Name>\AppData\Local\Skyrim

Be aware that the AppData directory, and everything in it, is hidden... So just follow the instructions I posted a few comments ago. Click Start and type %appdata% into the search box. Then back out of the "Roaming" folder and you'll see the "Local" folder. Open "Local" and you'll see the "Skyrim" folder. Delete "Skyrim" in "Local"

If you have any further questions, just drop 'em here. I'm kinda trolling the forums tonight, so I'll be around to answer for an hour or so.

I have made way more than that number of saves (I overwrite a lot of the time and probably have about 50 save files for my multitude of characters) and have not encountered this problem. Unless it was because it was 999 saves on one character, I would guess the save number might be a coincidence.

Before you delete all your local content I would recommend verifying your game cache.

Find your game in the Steam Library.
Right click on it.
Select Properties
Then the Local Files tab.
Then Verify Integrity of Game Cache.

EDIT: also there is no rule that says you can't back up your saves before deleting them if you go that course.
