C++ Visual Runtime Error: R6025. How to fix this?

So I have been playing Skyrim through Steam since the beginning of this past summer and have had no problems.  Then about a month ago, roughly a week or two before Christmas, I have started getting this error.  I have not downloaded and mods or the like and my computer was running the game fine up until this point.  Now the game is only playable for 5-10 minutes before I receive this message followed by a crash.  This error has occurred outside of the game before, however has not occurred in about 3-4 months, and only appears now while in the game.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It sounds like MS Visual C++ has been corrupted somehow.  Skyrim uses C++ 2010.

- You will find an installer for Visual C++ 2010 located in Steam\ SteamApps\ Common \ Skyrim Folder.
- Find the folder called VCRedist.
-Run the installer in this folder - vcredist_x86.exe . 
-You will get a window asking if you want to Repair or Remove. Choose either.
Repairing should be all that's needed, but if you continue having problems after a repair
run the installer again and choose Remove.
This will uninstall C++ 2010, and when you run the installer the next time you will have a clean install.

Thanks, I tried this and at first it seemed to work but now it just seems to prolong the crash by about 10 mins.  I tried both repairing and re-installing.  Neither have resolved the problem.

Because the game only has the installer for x86 I assumed it uses the x86 version. If you are
running Win7 64bit check in Programs and Features to see if you have Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x64  installed. If not install that as well.

Is Skyrim the only game causing problems ?
While the following  may not seem to relate to the error message, error messages can be misleading.
- Run temperature monitor on both the cpu and graphics card to verify they're not overheating.
- I haven't encountered any problems with Skyrim, yet, but previous Bethesda games were prone to corrupt games saves. If it's possible, roll back
to a save from before the problem started and see if you get better results. If not we can discount
a corrupt save.
- Then we have the forum favorite - Clean Boot. It is possible something else is interfering with
C++, so I would first try disabling my Anti-Virus. If that doesn't help move on to troubleshooting
via Clean Boot to verify if there are other programs or services conflicting.

It is best to start a new thread with full details of your problem, but -
Give some more details about what is, or is not happening.
Also be specific about what you have done to fix the problem.

Were you also able to play the game up to a certain point ?
If you have not been able to play the game include your system specifications with graphics
make and model.

I have the exact same problem with Skyrim. This is a new problem since I last played the game several months ago. I tried installing/repairing the MS C++ with most current versions for my platform (x64). I also tried x86 in Steam folder as suggested. Problem not resolved: after 15-20minutes of play, game suddenly freezes with R6025 error.

I checked everything on my pc: video driver, heat, ram, hard drive, viruses/malware, overall system health, Everything checks out good.

I looked all over the internet. I have been unable to find a fix for this problem.

I have the same problem but i think i know the reason: The Heartfire DLC

A few weeks ago i reinstalled windows 7 64-bit and skyrim, everything was running perfect even with 100+ mods. Last night i build a heartfire home (Falkreath) and now the R6025 error is driving me crazy ...

I logged more than 1200 hours on skyrim and it's not the first time i suspected the heartfire DLC of messing up my game!

I just built a Hearthfire home last night as well (Dawnstar) and have had the problems ever since as well. 125 hours+ logged of play (I just got the game a few weeks ago). I wasn't having the error whilst I was building the house, only after I've gone to play through other quests.
