Skyrim lag.
I had a mod problem in the past and I took my mods and put them in a new folder and out of the Skyrim folder. I reinstalled the game and was able to play but, the game lags at a point where it cannot be ignored and makes it harder to play. Anything I could do to fix this? Also is there a way to put in back all of my mods in a way that will not affect the game and I can continue playing?

Should've used Steam workshop or Nexus Mod manager to install / uninstall the mods. Just moving folders around likely won't get rid of all modifications that have been made.

Anyways, it would probably be best to just delete all local files, reinstall the game and then install your mods in an organized manner using NMM or Steam.

I did use Steam workshop to download the mods. This problem actually happened when I tried to get a mod from Nexus but I messed up and it caused the game to crash. I deleted everything Nexus from my computer but the game was still crashing.

Got anywhere with this issue yet? I am having a similar problem.

I was able to fix this issue, but sadly it required me to get rid of every mod I had associated with the game. I wrote down every mod I had on paper (trying to put them on a word document was a huge mess), then I uninstalled Nexus (this was the main problem that started this whole thread of problems), uninstalled Skyrim, removed every mod from my computer, and started from scratch. I basically removed all histroy of the game along with the modding programs I used as if I had just bought the game. I installed the game and it works fine. It was a pain to do this and to start over my game, but it's worth it.

you should always use either nexus mod manager or the steam workshop, both together is asking for problems.
i've got over 50 mods installed with little to no problems because i installed everything via NMM. the load order can get a bit tricky with this method, but there's a tool to help with that too, it's called BOSS afaik, but i never needed it myself

That's not true at all - the combination of those two installers doesn't cause problems. I've had a ton of mods from Workshop along my, uh even bigger ton of mods from Nexus.

The problem I've had with Workshop is it auto-updates - and that breaks some script heavy mods - and the launcher turns on *all* my plugins if I let it finish updating (I have several in a bashed patch and don't need the individual plugins activated).

The real issue is how does someone screw up installing mods when using Nexus? Its drag, drop, double-click. Typically the only way to screw it up is with the more complicated mods that ask you to select specific options and you select an option that's not compatible with your current game setup - such as installing a compatibility patch for a mod you don't have installed.

In which case, its not *Nexus* screwing the game up, its the mod installer.
