Can I reinstall this game and keep my save files? I certainly hope 10 days worth of play won't be lost.
I found this out, not sure why, it stops working but Navigate your .exe for Skyrim generally located in
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim for 64bit systems
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim for 32bit systems
Look for TESV.exe
Right click on it click Properties and go to the Compatibility tab at the bottom it will say Privilege Level and under that a check box, make sure this is unchecked.
It worked fine for me
very interesting problem hope this helped guys and Happy Gaming
Same problem here. Freezes at launch window. Tried all three fixes on this thread and none worked. Any other ideas? I have no mods and it has been working fine. Nothing has changed on computer.
Don't know if this will help anybody, but the thing that finally worked was updating the graphics card software. Not sure why that made a difference since it was no different than when it was working, but for some reason after it updated the game works again.
I installed skyrim and played it a couple of days and now suddenly i cant find it on my computer, not even in the program (x86) files but my computer still shows it as being installed. When I do a search on my computer for it comes up under "games" as unspecified. Any ideas?
