UPDATE - FIXED (NEARLY...)
So having spent much time reading and trying various 'fixes' none of which worked, including reinstalling the DX End User Runtime (June 2010) then the DX files from the Skyrim directory, then 2010 again; various ini settings in various ini's; crash fixes 11 through 12b4; just SKSE memory patch; and so on I alighted upon THIS THREAD detailing pretty much exactly the same issues as I was having. And I found one thing mentioned late on in the thread which I hadn't tried. I replaced the 305 enb files with those from 262 et voila, crashes gone completely. In every profile. In vanilla through Steam. Gone.
Now this leaves me happy that I can actually get into the game and play test, but sad because with .262 I don't have any options really for VW compatible ENBs :(Go to the full post
