I have been told lots of people are stuck on the Blood on Ice Quest in Windheld and believe it to be bugged. I did that quest without a problem but it does have some bugs in it that I can see will cause confusion so I wrote the solution down in my Blog, anybody playing it and wondering how to start that quest should read it.
I have also been told the reason Skyrim crashes a lot after level 18 on 64 bit machines is because it goes over the 2gig ram limit a 32bit program is restricted by and a program can patch the exe and stop it crashing.
This is that program
Here is the text one of my users posted to describe what it does and it appears to work for me.
If any of you are on a 64bit operating system, have more than two gigs of RAM, and are finding Skyrim crashing more and more often (As I did), it may be because the .exe is always running out of memory. As the game itself is huge, and is only a 32bit exe, it will unsurprisingly hit its 2GB limit (32bit exe can only use 2gigs of ram max, even if you had something like 16gigs of ram).
I found this happened to me alot, my PC has 8 gigs of RAM, but, especially later in the game, it started crashing often, whenever a loading screen was involved, it would crash about 80% of the time. However, thanks to some googling, I found a program that allows Skyrim to use more than 2 gigs of ram, I think up to a max of 4. It is very easy to use, and solved my issues completely :) No more crashes for me.
I have been adding to this blog as new information comes in.
It appears there are other ways to start the quest too but I only tried this way.
