So I'm completely confused. I've gotten back into skyrim, set up my mods again, went around making sure things worked, and everything was grand for a couple days while I fiddled around trying out new mods, and waiting ages for the FNIS to do its thing.
Then I start getting CTDs constantly, and figure its a mod clashing or that's too old to work properly anymore. So I go back and disable them, like usual to try and pinpoint where the issue is.
However, now, I can't get anything to run. Skyrim CTDs contantly, with or without mods. I've got the steam versio, so I've done the "verify integrity" thing, redownloaded and fixed it, and tried to move on. But now, no matter what I do or dont do, something keeps corrupting or deleting something. I haven't a clue what, since Steam doesn't give any information at all. Using vortex though, to try and uninstall, reinstall, and otherwise reset or try mods again, i'm getting constant messages that something outside of vortex is deleting files. It's not even the same files, it happens left and right every time I try and change anything in vortex, and IMMEDIATELY after verifying the integrityi via steam, something deletes something vital enough that the exe for skyrim won't even launch in the first place.
I'm about to run a new virus scan, though I highly doubt that's the case, but I'm wondering if this is something anyone else has seen? Any specific mods that might be corrupted/deprecated enough to constantly screw things up even when EVERYTHING is disabled and uninstalled? I'm about at my wits end, and if I have to delete everything and redownload the whole game and all the mods I play with normally, I'm probably just gonna give up on skyrim entirely for another couple of years.
