Skyrim stutters terribly when I'm close to objects. For example, when closely passing trees at the intro scene or next to a bed when indoors. The game runs fine when outside or in the middle of a house.

I’ve tried using minimal graphics and lowering the resolution. I’ve also tried disabling Vsync and mouse acceleration. I’ve tried lowering my monitors refresh rate to 59hz and lastly, I’ve tried overriding the games graphics settings with the Radeon settings, but none of it helped.

I did some benchmarks and tried some other games to ensure my graphics card was working fine, and it was.

I haven’t installed any mods, but I have installed the DawnGuard, HeartFire and DragonBorn DLCs.

I’ve built the computer I’m playing on myself using an AMD FX 6350 CPU and an AMD Radeon RX 470 GPU.

Finally, here are the contents of my SkyrimPrefs.ini file;

Does anyone know how I can get my game working?

By now, I've found out that the problem was caused by Skyrim's incompability with Windows 10. If I run the game in Windows 7 compatibility mode, everything works fine.
