When I updated to 8.1 Skyrim crashes when I load an old save or start a new one. I have looked for an answer for countless hours and tried re installs. I really want to play skyrim and record it for my YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/Theonlycstiles96

I really hope you can help me!

You should be able to roll back from 8.1 to 8.

You could also remove and re-install Skyrim. I don't know what to say about your saves.

Will rolling back to win 8 erase any files or anything along those lines?

Yeah thats what I was afraid of. I guess it can wait until I switch over to dual booting with ubuntu and steam os in the next month or so. Thanks for the suggestions.
