When i launch skyrim from the shortcut, the steam folder, or in steam itself, steam crashes before i get to the launcher. Any ideas?

You could uninstall and reinstall, restart your computer, run as administrator, repair install. Thats what pops in my head. I'm not so sure. Have you modded at all? Has the game ever worked?

Ok, i uninstalled steam, and now it crashes when trying to reinstall skyrim. It worked before, then my computer crashed and i had to re-install windows.

Since you reinstalled windows it should be more stable now. Win7?

I'm getting the same sort of problem, except Skyrim crashes on main menu before I can choose an option. I haven't played it in about a week and I uninstalled the latest mods I put in just today and it's still crashing. I tried opening it both in Steam and SKSE and it still won't work. I have a list of mods that have always worked before, even last time I played, but now it just decides to crash without reason. I would love some help with this since I would like to play this game again.

There might still be some files from those mods left. I would look through the folders and make sure.

How would I know which ones go to those though? Going through it, there are a LOT of files, and I wouldn't know how to sift through them properly. On that note I don't entirely trust 'delete everything, maybe re-install, activate mods again'.

I figured out this problem is much bigger than just steam. Something screwed something up on my laptop so bad it gives me various errors from 70% of the programs i try to run. usually a dll error, or in steam's case, no error at all, just closes.
