    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Lag and low FPS

    Hello There,

    I have had this game in my steam library and I just Started playing the game as I finished all the games i had before it to play. Although i started to play they game and noticed the game was a bit laggy and had low FPS although at times it jump up to 40FPS and then back down to around 10-15FPS. I am using some graphics mods, I dont think its the mods because a friends of mine uses the same mods on the game and he doesn't have this problem. The only reason I am using mods is to make the graphics more realistic. If anyone has a fix to this please let me know.

    1. Check your video setting in the game
    2 Steam Community :: Guide :: TES Skyrim: Increase your FPS/Performance efficiently.
    3. Remove the MOD see if FPS increases

Highlights instead of scrolls?
I've noticed that quite often when using my digitizer stylus to swipe thru an open document or to scroll up or down a web page that instead of scrolling it just highlights everything as though I want to copy something. I don't have this issue when using my finger. Is there a setting I'm missing?
