I don't play skyrim anymore, got boring.. not my type of game but I didn't have any problems, my pc is crap.. 2gb ram, amd 6,000 x2 dual core 3ghz, 3870 hd, can't even overclock lol, my motherboards locked..
when I played skyrim I do admit I played window mode and hid the task bar, it didn't lag, I turned settings down , medium texture and low for the other 2 options, and the fade of things was fine.. i didn't play it high
I also run my graphics card fan at 100% and reduces all my lag, if i left it at 50% I can see skyrim does freeze every 20seconds.. I fixed this by installing rivatuner and just setting up a fan profile for max fans when it goes high temp.. always around 40c when playing
standard clock settings
I'm also on xp, I have no anti virus running or ANY applications and always set skyrim to high priority when I did play it.. maybe that's what your missing?
