No this is not a simple case of Bethesda makes buggy games.
Up until 2 days ago all 3 Bethesda games I own ran perfectly. Suddenly they could not load games, or even start new games. They all reach the loading screen before the game starts and then it crashes to desktop. "Skyrim/FalloutNV/Fallout3 has stopped working"
It was around that time I installed Morrowind, which wouldn't even get to the menu without crashing.
I've since reinstalled all 3 games, reinstalled Steam, and done a complete system reboot. None of which provided an y different results. It sounds like something with the engine these games use, as I can run any other game fine.
Thanks for any help

yeah i would assume you have corrupted your dx install. so updating it with the latest 1 cant do any harm...
also make sure you run a decent reg cleaner like ccleaner. to make sure its not registry corruption causing it...
