Skyrim CTD upon entering whiterun.
I enter the gates of whiterun. A loading screen appears. The loading screen disappears. Skyrim Crashes

This does not happen anywhere else in the game, I entered the gates of every other city, dungeon, etc... without a problem.

I tried turning off all dlc content, did NOT work.
I tried restarting my computer multiple times, did NOT work.
I tried making a new character, did NOT work.
I tried progressing through other parts of the game and then returned later, did NOT work.
I tried these, did NOT work:

What is left?

Do you have any Mods that chagne the Whiterun World Space in any way? I would disable those

Hey, could you tell me whether it is crashing when entering Whiterun, or when it is loading? For example, if you go into the main menu, and click continue, does it immediately crash? I know multiple people who are experiencing issues after a recent update. Bethesda or Steam? Probably Steam.

@ Connor2weirdness
As I am entering the instance the loading screen for whiterun comes up, after a few seconds (3-4) on the loading screen, it crashes. Yes Steam.

@ Simmons
I have disabled every mod and dlc in game to see if it works, to no avail
Update: Just tried tried using the console.

coc whiterunorigin, did not work. still crashed to desktop.
Update: Just tried using setgs fJumpHeightMin "Height" to jump over white runs walls, and on the other side all I saw was a pixelated corrupted city with gaps through the floor. I assumed that whiterun doesn't exist in my copy of skyrim, googled it and found someone with a similar problem as I:

Hopefully this♥♥♥♥♥♥gets fixed.
Ok success I got sent to prison in Whiterun, so far so good. Will let you all know if it crashes again. EDIT: Unsuccessful, leaving the prison to Whiterun results in a CTD. Not to mention me having to restart from a previous save.

I have the exact same problem. I cannot enter Whiterun, shows the loading screen and then crashes a few minutes later.

HAVE YOU WACKED MODS ON ???? That was the question asked and not answered.
No response, no fixes
Rant over, go to page 18 in pinned topic for fixes and learn to read and act.

No I have no mods at all. I just downloaded the games last night and this happens.

I have also looked on Google and there quite a few others with the same problem but no solutions. And I wondering also if this issue is what makes me freeze in random areas besides entering Whiterun.

I had no mods at the time. However, it fixed when I reinstalled it randomly one day :/.

Hmm...maybe I should re-install mine..

Firstly did you verify game and have you put unofficial patches on you need those, believe me they are must then next issue is put BOSS on and let it arrange your load order with no mods you should be good to go.
Only put unofficial patches on for the main game and what DLC's you have and they are on nexus now(most download ones)
Sorry before but remember we can't see what you see or done to the game, its called information, more the better.

I simply have download the legendary verison from steam onto my computer this is all. No patches, no mods, nothing just whatever came with the legendary verison off steam.

If you have not done so already; please use Steam's Verify Game Cache to ensure the downloaded files are correct and complete.
