I keep getting the same CTD and, like a fool keep trying expecting a different outcome. I have tried to disable all my mods which leaves me with just the DLC's and both the official and unofficial patches installed which still renders the same outcome - CTD.
I am riding my horse, Shadowmere, towards Riften (doesn't matter which town cos the proximatey to any town gets the same result), and with only about 300 metres or so to go, the games freezes for a second and the CTD. If it was only Riften, I could live with a fast travel into and out of town. However, it's Riften and Solitude and I'm trying t avoid the whole fast travel thing, anyway.
I have tried to disable mods individually to see if it was a mod causing the problem but, as I say, that hasn't resolved the issue. My mods were cleaned with TES5edit, as advised by BOSS, and I have dealt with the levelled lists with WryeBash. I've cleaned my save (to the best of my knowledge) with BASH. I've done basic system maintenance recently including drivers and viruses, yesterday, so I'm sure there's nothing wrong there. This problem is happening whether mods are active or not. I've also verified the integrity of my game cache which only left me needing to clean the mods with TES5Edit again. I have tweaked my skyrim.ini according to a tweak guide on the Nvidia website to ensure my experience is optimised.
My rig is an i5-2500k (stock clock) with 8 GB RAM (stock clock), an Nvidia GTX 560ti (stock clock), 5500 rpm 1tb hdd running @ 3GB/s (? seemed slow?). To be fair Skyrim was running fine till I hammered the Arkham series and Darksiders series recently, which leaves part of me thinking that Skyrim is feeling a little rejected and throwing a paddy. Any help would be great.
