Major Problem....Need help. SOLVED
For months now I can not play Skyrim. Start a new game and everyone dies then it crashes once it get to Helgan. I tired to deal with Bethesda and they are no help. Has anyone found out what has happened to the game. I deleted all mods, deleted the game severel times and nothing works.

I would try deleting everything in the Documents/ My Games/ Skyrim folder and restarting the game. If you want to try to salvage your saves you can move them to another location for now. Just make sure they are not in that Skyrim folder when you restart the game.

Sometimes mods will alter the .ini settings. Even though you reinstalled the game those files remain unless you delete them and start fresh.

After you delete that folder and restart new files will be reacquired.

I have no mods running. I deleted all the mods that i had on the workshop and from nexus. all i have is the dlc that i get with the game. Deleted all my saves even the ones from the skse. ran my anti virus, cleansweep, defragmented, tuned up, ccleaner, antimalware, everything that everyone has told me ive tried. My buddy who built my computer and a few of his friends cant play there game as well.

I have reccomended this before so I'll just paste it here. You can decide of you want to try it.

Here is what I did to solve similar issues:

Installed NMM.
Downloaded LOOT & TES5edit.
Deleted everything in Documents>My Games>Skyrim folder. (backup your saves to a differant location if you want to keep them)
Deleted everything in Steam>SteamApps>Common>Skyrim folder.
Unsubed all Workshop mods.
Deactivated All Nexus mods.
Verified Game Cache Integrity.
Clean Skyrim & DLC Master Files with TES5edit. (Find Gopher's tutorials on YouTube an follow his instructions.)
Downloaded All Unofficial Patches (Skyrim & DLCs) ( I don't use High Res Textures 1, 2, 3)
Use LOOT to set your load order.
Downloaded SkyUI & SKSE
Use LOOT to set your load order again.
At this point you should have a stable base game and DLCs.
Reactivate your mods one at a time using LOOT after each mod activation or subscription allowing LOOT to sort your load order. Restart game after each addition to see if game function smoothly.

I have not had any CTDs, lockups or any other problems since doing this. Am now running 46 mods (including graphics mods) without a hitch.

The choice is yours. Good Luck.
