Whenever i try and load my latest save or make a new game in skyrim, the loading screen comes up as usual but then it freezes. After about 5mins skyrim just closes itself with no error message.

Things i have tried...

- updating drivers
-deleting skyrim (deleted it 4 times)
- deleting all of my mods
- the sound quality trick
- updating skyrim

NOTHING IS WORKING! Specs...

xfx hd 6870 dual fan edition 1gb

Amd phenom II x6 @ 3.2 ghz

8gbs DDR3 RAM

Skyrim used to run around 45fps - 60fps on highest settings with graphically intensive mods

I have no idea what the problem is... :??:

By the way I have the steam version
 
Go to C:\Users\<yourname>\Documents\my games\skyrim delete these two files:

"Skyrim"
"SkyrimPref"

Then go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim and make sure all files are deleted.

If that does not work, you may have a corrupted save file.
