    Evert time i launch Skyrim it closes before it even gets to the main options menu.
    The little black box that loads before the Skyrim start menu appears is where it cancels.
    Anyone have any ideas? i reinstalled, i uninstalled and reinstalled, i got rid of all my mods,
    it is still doing it?
    I don't understand why.

    Try this : go to your Skyrim folder in you user's directory and move the skyrim.ini and skyrimprefs.ini out of that folder and somewhere safe, in case you need them. These files aren't removed when you uninstall, I believe.

    Remove any dx9***.dll files from the game directory (where TESV.exe and the Launcher are)

    Now start Skyrim Launcher (NOT Skyrim) and let it choose your graphics settings, then quit the launcher and start Skyrim.
