Ok,So this is a problem I have been having recently. Skyrim was running fine for months, but suddenly, every time I play the game invariably crashes. This does not always happen at the same time: some times, I can play for 15-20 minutes before the game crashes to Desktop, and at other times, it crashes as soon as I load up a fresh save file. There is no error message, no error sound, the game simply closes off as if I had alt-F4'd. Has anyone else ever had this problem? I tried disabling all of my mods, as well as disabling Dawnguard, and it doesn't help at all.
Also, does this mean my save file is corrupted? I tried telling Steam to verify the Integrity of the Game Cache, and I keep getting the message "1 file failed to validate and will be reacquired," but besides the message I get nothing. --- "Don't piss in my ear and tell me it's raining"
Try disabling all your mods and starting with a new save (just to see how stable it is). It's always possible that there are some orphaned scripts causing issues, things that wouldn't be fixed just by disabling mods.
I've noticed a few topics like this lately and I have also been having CTDs randomly ever since 1.9 as well. I started to notice that when I switched menus too quickly it would crash. I uninstalled categorized favorites menu yesterday and played for 4-5 hours and it didn't crash. --- "We should have ****ing shotguns" - Vincent Vega
I made a topic about this as well, my skyrim crashes every hour, like clockwork. Im not even using any mods, just playing Vanilla Skyrim, and it still crashes every hour. Really sucks. --- This site is full of trolls, Right Zack?

How exactly do you uninstall the favorites menu, and what does that entail? --- "Don't piss in my ear and tell me it's raining"

Categorized favorites menu is a SKSE mod. To uninstall it, assuming you do in fact have have it installed, got to skyrim root/data/interface and delete all favoritesmenu files. There should be two or three of them. I just had a crash after playing for a couple of hours but that was the first one in a while. It's definitely decreased the crashing after I uninstalled it. Sucks though, it's a good mod, really makes the favorites menu a lot better. But I'd still prefer to have no crashes. Or at least less crashes. --- "We should have ****ing shotguns" - Vincent Vega
