With all of the newer mods out I wanted to reinstall skyrim today so I deleted everything (skyrim and nmm but I saved a copy of my saves file) from my pc and wanted to start with a fresh install of skyrim to mod. So now I go to load up my old save and it instantly kicks me to desktop. I can start a new game just cant load my old ones. The mods I was using were mostly graphic related. Does anyone know a way to get them to work again?

ok, this might sound bad, but go into your folder with teh skyrim and skyrimpref ini files, make a copy of them somewhere else and then delete the originals (or jsut cut them and paste them) and then start a new game, play til it makes the first save, when you get off the cart, and hten log out and try loading your original save.

I think I figured it out the last couple of saves probably got corrupted. we only ended up losing a couple hours each save so it looks like Im off the couch tonight
