Already did that. Had no effect.
Other off the cuff possibilities:

Did you try the "Verify Texture Cache" option on the start up menu?

Also, might want to try the large address aware mod? Especially if you added any texture mods.

Watch the temp of your GPU? but even that may nt be enough, try putting extra fans blowing on the card, ram could be overheating ahead of the GPU itself...

I have to turn my fans up to max when playing...

I haven't had too many problems with the purple cancer. I saw it once, early on with some trees. Other than that, no problems. I've been running the LAA most of the time I've been playing it. And MSI Afterburner reports that temps on my GPU's are running about normal. 75 to 80 on GPU 1 and 65 to 70 on GPU 2 during gameplay.

If you have a large save folder - C:\Users\UserName\Documents\My Games\Skyrim\Saves, try deleting, or moving some of the older save files somewhere else.

I posted this suggestion for Fallout 3 a while back as it seemed to cure a lot of crashes for me. What I usually did in Fallout 3 was move all but the last 10-15 saves, after that my crashes subsided until the folder ballooned again (I do a lot of saving).
I don't know about clearing "texture" issues but it does help with the crashing issues. And yeah, those save files add up quick if you save often.

BTW I asked a question about the latest ATI drives a few pages back -

Thanks.

Ahh.. it was crashing, not textures. My bad. That's why it didn't make logical sense to me!

Huh? Was not aware of any "verify texture cache" option anywhere?

Only "verify integrity of game cache" in Steam. Already did that before anyways. After they broke the LAA patch.

Did use it at the beginning, until they sent out that 18MB update to Skyrim that broke the LAA patch and tied the TESV.exe to Steam.

Haven't used the "4GB patch" on skyrimnexus you have to use now if you want that to work.

Have an aftermarket Accelero Xtreme cooler on my card, and watch the temps in real time on a gadget on another monitor. No overheating there.

Thanks for the suggestions though. It's a quite common bug seen by a lot of other users (browsing the interwebz).

First time seeing this unoffical bug list. Already seen many of them there. Even have the purple bug listed. lol

* Some textures will not load at all, showing the normal maps instead (which look like huge blue/purple textures) - eg screen.

Yeah. Lots of bugs...

So the 1.2 patch is looking pretty weak in fixing stuff so far, actually.


Noticed that annoying one, too.

Quote:
* Skills sometimes drop for no apparent reason
And this one...

Quote:
* Generally doing anything (killing NPC's, clearing dungeons, finding items, letting a summoned creature kill a quest-specific kill target etc. etc.) that are required for a quest, BEFORE you ever see/receive that quest, breaks the quest. Quests all need to re-check for triggers having already been achieved the moment you accept them.

In the mean time I'm reading this article - The Skyrim Team Has a Better Plan for Squashing Bugs this Time and this paragraph amused me....

Quote:
Before launch, Howard said, Bethesda is testing Skyrim rigorously and more heavily using a system that runs automated versions of the game overnight, searching for bugs and helping the team squash them. "We're getting better at it," Howard said.
Though the game is nowhere as bad as Bethesda's last release - Fallout New Vegas, it's certainly not as clean as they'd hoped. At least they're trying though, I give them credit for that.

Quote:
They are also adopting this new EA Sports-style "live update" system that will let Bethesda tweak the data in their game almost immediately. If a quest isn't triggering because players are doing some unforeseen combination of actions, that might be addressable by tweaking the data tables that dictate the flow of events in the game. If the game is proving to be unbalanced in an unexpected way, that can be fixed on the fly too. And these fixes—Howard prefers to call them "improvements"— will take effect fast. "We can change stats on a sword and it will be available to everyone in a few hours," he said.
Good article to read.

Discuss: Bulletstorm
So what do you people think of this game, those who have played it. I finished it, I can't say I love it, it was "iffy" to say at best. Not a great game. The whole process of "kill with skill" didn't really turn out to be as awesome as it sounded for me.
